Each is signed and numbered by Nan Goldin and comes with a special edition of The Devil's Playground that is beautifully bound, also individually signed and numbered. She became immersed in the intense climate of the East Village in the late 1970s and early 1980s, with its parties, music, film scene, drugs, and both heterosexual and homosexual sexual experiences. Sometimes she does not decide what she thinks of a person until she has photographed that person: and so photography provides her with a tool to free her fears and a guide for ‘translating’, grasping and understanding her own life.

After attending the Boston School of Fine Arts, Goldin moved to New York in 1978, drawn by the myth of the artist’s life in the big city. You'll be drawn in, turned on, disgusted, or in love with this absorbing book, which has a strange beauty of it own.She has been mentioned several times in connection to my artworks (mostly photography) with the feeling that can be felt from the photos which influenced me to go take a look at the library in one of her books titled The Devil’s Playground.

She is most famous for her Ballad of Sexual Dependency photographs, a constantly changing slide show of approximately 750 photographs set to music. This book is a special edition of The Devil's Playground that is beautifully bound, signed and numbered. The Devil's Playground is the first major book to be published on Goldin's work since 1996 and it is by far her most important to date. while “Mon am'” portrays another more mature couple of friends, with occasional apparitions of the woman’s child ( Valerie and Bruno Sex, Hand on Wall, Paris, 2001; Valerie, Bruno and Mel Laughing in Bed, Paris, 2001; etc.Without reading about the book beforehand and finding information about what the series of photographs included in this book are, I jumped right into viewing. Born in Washington DC, Goldin grew up in Boston where she began taking photographs at the age of 15. This multimedia work is made up of more than seven hundred slides projected and accompanied by musical passages that serve as the narrative voice.

Every shot is the maximum moment of an encounter, that instant that inevitably precedes separation, the lens that closes, darkness.

The Devil's Playground is the first major book to be published on Goldin's work since 1996 and it is by far her most important to date. In recent years, Goldin also has photographed magical landscapes like the intensely blue sea in a grotto in Capri, the Stromboli volcano steaming at dawn, ex-votos in Somma Vesuviana, or the smoking tar pits of Solfatara near Pozzuoli. Goldin’s art is also one of the clearest manifestations of the vitality of the realist tradition today, that tradition in literature and painting where everyday life and the most humble of beings are represented with dignity. Titled “ I’ll Be Your Mirror“, it brought together powerful images expressing the range of joys and sorrows that her work had reflected up to then.

The underlying theme of survival – the artist’s own as well as that of others – is present throughout Goldin’s oeuvre – but it emerges forcefully in these recent pictures, after the loss of many of her friends to AIDS and drugs over the years. Jens' Hand on Clemen's Back" by Nan Goldin is a large format silkscreen limited print edition of 100. This book features a significant body of latest work by Goldin, including photographs from new series such as Still on Earth (1997–2001), 57 Days (2000) and Elements (1995–2003), many of which are previously unpublished. It comes in a specially made box together with an original Cibachrome print, also signed and numbered by Nan Goldin. In “First Love”, we see different moments of desire and tenderness in the life of her young nephew and his first lover ( Simon and Jessica on the Metro, Paris, 2001; Simon and Jessica Kissing in my Shower, Paris, 2001; etc.

C. in 1953, the artist spent her early childhood in a typical residential neighborhood of the great American suburbs. She documents life as lived … It is fitting that the sequencing, which was laid out by Goldin herself, feels distinctly diary-esque: the profound insights often to be found in a seemingly abstract moment. Valerie in the taxi, Paris, 2001 by Nan Goldin is a large format silkscreen limited print edition of 100. There was nothing indicating the feeling of discomfort and ‘the uncanny’ at first, but the more I read through the pictures, the more uncomfortable I felt.Since the early 1970s, Goldin has taken numerous photographs of her friends and 'family', which form a unique corpus of work. The storm comes with personal family pictures, which at first looked like a usual family album pictures… but that was exactly the problem (? These groups of pictures include themes titled “The Other Side”, “Recovery”, “AIDS”, “First Love”, “Mon am'”, “Elements” and “Still on Earth”.
