Nan Goldin re-appropriated a photograph of dried roses, applying variable pile heights to the petals. Nan Goldin has developed an iconic style of making photography that has influenced multiple facets of popular culture and the art establishment. Rather than objectifying her subjects, Goldin goes beyond the conventions of photography as representations of reality, demonstrating a pure determination to capture the moment and to approach subjects with a kind of sensitivity largely absent from media.

About Nan Goldin

Nan Goldin’s richly colored snapshots capture a world that is universally human yet highly personal. The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, a filmic slideshow, presents hundreds of intense, intimate moments from Goldin’s life in New York during the 1970s and ‘80s—the artist in bed with her lover, drag queens kissing in bars, a man suffering from HIV. While Goldin, now recognized as a pioneer of diaristic photography, documents with unflinching candor a society ravaged by AIDS, drug addiction, and abuse, it is the empathy reflected in these images that imbue them with a remarkable lyricism. Unlike the cool detachment of documentary photography, taking pictures for Goldin is “a way of touching someone—a form of tenderness.”

American, b. 1953, Washington, D.C.
