Nan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency

First published in 1986, “Nan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency,” is a visual diary chronicling the struggles for intimacy and understanding among the friends and lovers. These photographs described a lifestyle that was visceral charged and seething with a raw appetite for living and the book soon became the swan song for an era that reached its peak in the early 1980s. Twenty-five years later Goldin’s lush color photography and candid style still demand that the viewer encounter their profound intensity head-on. This anniversary edition features all-new image separations produced using state-of-the-art technologies and specially prepared reproduction files which offer a lush immersive experience of this touchstone monograph.
