Nick Haymes - Zoloto (published 2007)
“Zoloto, the Russian word for gold, reflects Haymes’s affections for his family life—however unhinged it may appear.
Childish revelry soon turns to a bloodied nose, which with time returns again to revelry. Through Haymes’ unflinching gaze, the experiences of childhood and adolescence are defined with unusual clarity and savage beauty.
The sequence of Zoloto details an intimate narrative of this complex inner world, as Haymes’ images are at once a combination of both the documentary and the staged, employing tableaux to further reveal the intimacies of childhood life.”
