    Book details

Anyone who has seen her Digital Diaries has intimate knowledge of Natacha Merritt. And of her Friends, male and female, and her acquaintances as well. But Merritt's favourite motif is herself: she poses almost every minute of the day for her camera, taking photographs of herself in bed, in the shower, having sex with her friend, masturbating with and without accessories, from every imaginable angle and with the camera usually at arm's length. Merritt, born 1977, works with a digital camera, the Polaroid of the 90s, breaking down the most intimate details into universally accessible bits of information. Eric Kroll came across Natacha Merritt by chance in the internet, where she had put several of her photographs. This was something that left the tradition of classical pin-up and fetish photography, in which Kroll himself works, far behind. Face to face with Merritt's photographs one can reflect on intimacy and publicity in the digital age, on narcissism even, or on radical self-exploration with the help of the camera. But this all sounds better as Natacha Merritt herself puts it: in her view, she has found a new mode of masturbating her way into the next millennium.

Review Text

  • By A. Chivers on 21 June 2000

    One womans journey through the exploration of her sexuality in digital pictures. All the images, given the context of the artists objective in illustrating her voyage of sexual freedom and discovery, acn't fail to make vivid imprints on the readers mind. The pictures are erotic, provocative and more importantly, thought provoking. To be preent in the intimacy of her private life is a priviledge, and the beauty of the sexual act has never been better illustrated in my opinion.A beautiful book, and essential for people who appreciate that art and life are inextricably linked. And that peoples sexuality is a beautiful act which can be visually powerful.

    This is a visual diary of the sexual journey of a 21-year-old, Natacha. The photographs are surprisingly elegant: often sexy, but also raw and unsettling as well. There is an emotional expressiveness which runs through the book, along with symbolism, humour and maybe even political comment. Artful and thought-provoking.
