Nixons Live, Love, Look Last brings together similarly intimate photographs from the past decade. Each of the series presented-Nixons family, couples, Boston cityscapes and critically ill patients-originated as a project of its own, but Nixon soon realized that the four independent series collectively articulated his continual effort to simply render lifes most intimate moments, and so has gathered them here. Nixon brings a moving candor to his sense of portraiture, and takes care to strike a balance between on the one hand, getting the picture I want, and on the other, having his subjects] like the experience. I dont want them to feel like Ive taken anything they dont want to give me. Unflinchingly honest in his approach, Nixon explores the relationships between individuals and their environment, and how these bonds are affected by birth and death.
