Nan Goldin

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Highly acclaimed for her deeply personal and honest portraiture, Nan Golding is a photographer whose work was often controversial, intimate and universally human. Her most notable work is arguably The Ballad of Sexual Dependency – this series features snapshots of the NYC No Wave art and music scene, heroin dependency, the post-Stonewall gay subculture of the late 70’s, as well as Goldin’s own personal life;
 
« Nowadays, people forget how radical my work was when it first appeared. Nobody else was doing what I did. »
Nan Golding
the series has been cited as an influence for a lot of confessional photography to follow and was initially created by Goldin as a slideshow for her friends.
 
« For me it is not a detachment to take a picture. It's a way of touching somebody—it's a caress.  I think that you can actually give people access to their own soul. »
Nan Golding
 
Among Goldin’s influences are Diane Arbus, Michelangelo Antonioni and Larry Clark – all of whom were also renowned for their unshrinking portrayal of sexuality, substance abuse and health epidemics such as AIDS. In the later stages of her career, Goldin’s array of subject matter has widened even further to include New York City skylines, landscapes and parenthood.
