I remembered a few of her images had Cigarettes in but i didn’t realise how many. As a woman who surrounds herself by smokers Goldins work often shows them as a release, a moment of peace, happiness and stillness. A relationship, as a non smoker, i never really considered could happen. This could be a possible way forward… looking at human emotions when cigarettes meet lips. An idea i want to come back to, i don’t want to narrow my ideas down too soon.
