Comment parvenir à rendre compte de son intimité, de ses pulsions, de ses émotions ? Natacha Merrit a résolu cette question épineuse en prenant le parti d'enregistrer sa vie sexuelle sur pellicule. Digital Diaries est donc un journal sexuel, le sien. La photographe ne recherche ni la photographie d'art, ni la provocation. Cette somme d'autoportraits érotiques illustre autant de rencontres et d'états qu'elle a souhaité explorer. D'aucuns parleront de voyeurisme, d'autres d'une forme d'introspection peu banale. Travaillant exclusivement sur sa vie sexuelle, Natacha Merrit crée les images qu'elle veut donner de sa propre personnalité. Un travail photographique hors du commun qui, s'il avait existé à une autre époque, se serait sans nul doute attiré les foudres de la censure. À l'heure actuelle, il apparaît plus volontiers comme une performance originale. À noter que les textes, certes rares, sont uniquement en anglais. --Sandrine Fillipetti

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exceptionnel 31 juillet 2001
Format:Relié
Une grande artiste que cette jeune Natacha. Enfin une démarche artistique digne de ce nom, enfin un vraie place pour la photo digitale. La fin des tabous, la fin des barrières entre la vie, l'érotisme et la pornographie, ici le tout ne fait plus qu'un ou plutôt une ! Bravo.

des petites photos couleurs pour un grand livre qui a pourtant beaucoup de mérite...
-Mais je crois que le logo " public averti" n'a rien a voir dans ce livre
-aucunes photos sulfureuses, on reste dans le soft si ce n'est dans le flou pour bon nombre de cliché !!!
-pourtant Natacha Merritt a déjà donnée beaucoup de clichés excellent sans pour autant tomber dans la pornographie ( ce qui ,d'ailleurs, n'était pas le but recherché...)
-le texte ,traduit en Français, n'est guère plus attirant

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Are You Through, Yet? 25 avril 2000
Par Tom Rand - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Natacha Merritt's "Digital Diaries" is a one-dimensional tour de force, made possible by the following truism: Sex Sells. Where there is attention to detail and photographic aesthetics in the sexually driven works of other more competent photographers, such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Nan Goldin, Merritt's attention is only focused on naked people copulating and/or masturbating. "Digital Diaries" was published with the sole intent of selling sex, not photography. This is obvious. This is also (and only) why curious viewers will buy the book. The author and her acquaintances are interesting only because their clothes are off. Unlike Nan Goldin's book, "The Ballad of Sexual Dependency", we don't care or think about the people portrayed in "Digital Diaries"; we simply look at them. Therein lies Merritt's lack of depth as a photographer and visual storyteller. Not only obsessed with the need to get her point across visually, "Digital Diaries" also includes musings by the author about...what else, sex. By the end of "Digital Diaries" one can only hope twenty-two year old Merritt outgrows this teenage fascination with sex and self-absorption and finds another hobby.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not as cool as the shiny metal cover 19 septembre 2000
Par Jonathan J. Casey - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's unfair and ridiculous to brand this book as a youth culture failure. I can think of quite a few older phtographers who get a lot more silly and self-indulgent than Merritt. On the other hand, it's not a success. Introduced to this book in the pages of "Erotica" magazine (which featured the Eric Kroll interview reprinted in this collection), I was very attracted to the intimacy of the photography and what seemed like a candid atmosphere. It isn't quite that. In fact, while it purports to be a journalistic account of her sex life, much of the photography is centered on her face. And while I admit she has a fine face, and it's everyone's right to take a lot of pictures of themselves, this gets old after a few dozen shots. When her male lovers do appear it is usually in the form of a strangely disembodied sex organ, often wrapped in rope. Unlike a lot of other erotic photography, this is neither a catalogue of fetishes nor a celebration of the human body. There's certainly some beauty within these pages, and some very erotic photographs, but there's a lot of "filler" as far as I'm concerned: not terribly arousing but not all that artistic, either. I certainly don't discount her work, I think the digital photography medium can exist without fighting for legitmacy, but she's got some work to do. The text in particular doesn't seem all that honest or revealing, and I figure if you're going to take it this far you might as well go all the way. There's an ugly growing trend of false self-disclosure in our society right now ("reality" TV, JennyCam, etc.) and while I wouldn't fault Merritt she is veering dangerously in that direction. The book doesn't live up to its name, but it has some bright points. I could've lived with the highlights in my magazine, though I'm looking forward to seeing some future work by Merritt.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprisingly touching at points, with artistic intent. 26 mai 2000
Par D. Mok - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Though it'd be easy to lump Natacha Merritt with the rest of the webcam/internet exhibitionists, it took only one examination of this book to make me see otherwise in Merritt's digital photography.
With a maverick's audacity and technical disregard (one interviewer made the humorous remark that Merritt "can't tell an f-stop from a bus stop"), Merritt has somehow managed to discover a visual style all her own that fuses strange angles, simple lighting, unusual placement of her subjects, and introspection into one. The more explicit photos oftimes threaten to de-humanize Merritt herself and her subjects, but those are counterbalanced by some very tasteful, evocative shots that convey the subjects' internal drama.
Merritt makes a better subject than any other person in this book for her own camera. It doesn't hurt that she's gorgeous, but she has two things to her advantage: Expressive eyes, and the unique dynamic of photographer-as-subject. Is she simultaneously empowered and scrutinized by the camera? How often does she know what exactly the image looks like? And which photos are staged? Which ones are taken as a fly-on-the-wall snapshot? Merritt is always interesting as her own subject, and it is telling that the best set of pictures in this book, the "self search" series, focus much less on sexual acts than on self-discovery, examination, and Merritt's relationship to the camera and to her own body. Most of these are close-ups from wildly imaginative angles, shadowy, and intriguing -- the crowning picture is Merritt looking at her own hand in a mirror, contemplating. These pictures tell many stories about the young woman both in front of and behind the camera, and they're beautiful and revealing in a way far beyond the sexually explicit pictures. Most of those do manage to achieve a degree of honesty and spontaneity as well, making them erotically charged.
Accusations of narcissism can't be avoided and Merritt can probably be said to be guilty of it sometimes. But what she produces from her unique work methods is so intriguing, and her revelation of herself as photographer (a rarity in photography) so far-reaching, that this book remains a great fascination. It'd be a shame if it were to be lumped with the usual erotic photography and exhibitionistic endeavours. Digital Diaries has much more to offer.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A raw and honest look into a young woman's sexuality 4 août 2004
Par A. Sandoc - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Natacha Merritt's Digital Diaries is less an art book of nude photos than a raw and honest look --- some would say peek --- into a young woman's sexuality. It is not just a look, but a visual documentation of sexual experimentation including both a casual sexual situations and more fetishist imagery.

Digital Diaries is also very sexy just like its author-photographer. Natacha doesn't convey a shy personality, but actually comes off as a very liberated and aggressive young woman. Her book is not for everyone and certainly not for someone who doesn't have an open mind. Those who are willing to explore the many faces of sexuality, they can't go wrong by acquiring Ms. Merritt's Digital Diaries.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't over-analyse 2 novembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If you can prevent yourself from over-analysing this work, as so many critics do, you will hopefully see it, and accept it, for what it is. Obviously, you can take or leave the text; if you want a novel, you will buy one - not a book full of explicit photography. The photos themselves are wonderful. They are just SO REAL! I actually felt that I was present at these scenes; as though I was actually looking through the lens, or even just my own eyes. The flesh is so real and warm-looking. The pictures emanate sex and flesh and fun in the most exquisite proportions. They made me smile with understanding. This work is life, not art. Treat it as such.
