Nan Goldin: I'll be Your Mirror

Front Cover
Whitney Museum of American Art, 1996 - Photography, Erotic - 491 pages
Published to accompany the 1996 mid-career survey organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, I'll Be Your Mirror remains the most comprehensive and critically praised publication on the work of photographer Nan Goldin. Covering two decades of her life and art, from her time in Boston in the 1970s through her move to downtown New York City and her subsequent and stratospheric rise in the art world, Goldin's most memorable work is collected here. Amongst the many powerful images are photographs of friends and lovers sometimes in pain, sometimes in repose; self portraits taken during an abusive relationship, from The Ballad of Sexual Dependency; the transvestite and transgendered kings and queens of The Other Side; and the harrowing and moving documentation of the slow death from AIDS of close friend Cookie Mueller. Scalo Publishers is pleased to offer this seminal book at a new and more affordable price, making this classic title accessible to an even wider audience of Goldin's fans than ever before.
