Nan Goldin

USA / °1953 / wikipedia
Starting with her first solo show in 1973, Nan Goldin has always used her camera to document the lives of those she loved, focusing primarily on the LGBT community. Photographed without judgment, her images of everyone from drag queens to drug addicts is a raw depiction of life.

Goldin's work is often presented as slideshows set to music, such as her most famous work The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, which debuted at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Consisting of images taken between 1979 and 1986 in Goldin's Bowery neighborhood, it was controversial for its unflinching depiction of heroin addiction and gay culture in a post-Stonewall New York.
