The ballad of sexual dependency by Nan Goldin( Book )

32 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Goldin charts the loss of innocence through barrooms and parties on the social periphery of New York's East Village and through the harrowing worlds of drugs and prostitution. The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggle for intimacy and understanding between friends, and lovers--collectively described by Nan Goldin as her "tribe." Her work describes a world that is visceral, charged, and seething with life ... As Goldin writes: "Real memory, which these pictures trigger, is an invocation of the color, smell, sound, and physical presence, the density and flavor of life."--Publishers description
Nan Goldin by Guido Costa( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nan Goldin is internationally recognized as one of today's leading photographers. Her photographs have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, including SFMOMA, California, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Centre Pompidou, Paris and the Museu Reina Sofia, Madrid. Born in Washington DC, Goldin grew up in Boston where she began taking photographs at the age of fifteen. She has since lived in New York, Bangkok, Berlin, Tokyo and Paris, amassing an extensive body of work that represents a fascinating photographic portrait of our time. Since the 1980s, Goldin has consistently created images that are intimate and compelling; they tell personal stories of relationships, friendships and identity, but simultaneously chronicle different eras and the passage of time. Her 'snapshot'-esque images of her friends - drag queens, drug addicts, lovers and family - are intense, searing portraits that, together, make a document of her life. Goldin herself has commented on her photographic style and philosophy, saying, 'My work originally came from the snapshot aesthetic ... Snapshots are taken out of love and to remember people, places, and shared times. They're about creating a history by recording a history'. Her work often breaks social taboos with its explicit exploration of relationships, sexuality and eroticism, and has also shown the devastating effect AIDS has had on her community of friends. Through its sequence of 55 images, Nan Goldin presents an overview of the photographer's entire career, and illustrates the development of the intimate and raw style for which Goldin has become internationally renowned."--Publisher's description
Tokyo love : spring fever 1994 by Nan Goldin( Book )

Variety : photographs by Nan Goldin, from the film by Bette Gordon by James Crump( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Variety: Photographs by Nan Goldin compiles the still photographs Nan Goldin created for director Bette Gordon's now infamous 1983 independent film, Variety, and offer a rare glimpse into this artist's symbiotic working process. This work contains the hallmarks of Goldin's early photographs, while also links to the Lower East Side bohemian milieu from which she often unflinchingly mined her subjects, and the Variety still photographs display the influence of filmmaking on Goldin's prolific output and especially the independent directors that helped establish the nascent downtown film scene in the early 1980s. Hovering unsettlingly between fiction and reality, "documentary style" and art photography, Variety: Photographs by Nan Goldin reveals a curious and previously unexamined aspect of Goldin's iconic career." "Variety: Photographs by Nan Goldin provides a window into the collision of music, club life, and art production that colored the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and is an important addition to Nan Goldin's oeuvre."--Jacket
David Armstrong : the silver cord by David Armstrong( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work, subtly homoerotic, draws from themes of the past rather than the present, resulting in an overall quality that is unbounded by the constraints of time. The title, The Silver Cord, is a reference to the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes which discusses the end of time as we know it. Armstrong's photographs distil time leaving no before or after; the result is an ode to beauty
I'll Be Your Mirror by Edmund Coulthard( Visual )

Documentary examines the life of the American photographer, Nan Goldin. When her older sister committed suicide at the age of 18, Nan Goldin, then 14, leaves home, armed with an overwhelming compulsion to photograph everyone in her life. She later documents friends as they begin to die of AIDS & she realises how little her work can preserve: her images capture the slipping away of those lives, and what those friends had meant to her. Nan Goldin's photographs chronicle an intensely personal journey through the New York artistic underground over the last two decades. This program is an intimate account of Nan Goldin's life and work, from her upbringing in a middle class suburb of Washington to the wild party years of the 70s and 80s in New York, her own drug addiction and the devastating impact of AIDS on her community

Ed van der Elsken : camera in love by Ed van der Elsken( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his unconventional technique and gritty, evocative images of people and places, Ed van der Elsken was a self-taught photographer whose work documented his own life and travels. This book offers a definitive overview of van der Elsken's entire oeuvre, including his groundbreaking photo novel and his paean to 1950s Amsterdam. On display at Amsterdam's famed Stedelijk Museum, the exhibition at the center of this book focuses on the museum's extensive collection of van der Elsken's prints, and on the renowned installations he mounted there during his lifetime. Essays reveal the photographer's early influences, including Weegee, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Capa, while also showing how his confident, unorthodox, and self-expressionist style paved the way for late 20th-century photographers, including Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, and Wolfgang Tillmans

Beyond the body : Tomasz Gudzowaty in the eyes of Nan Goldin by Tomasz Gudzowaty( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond the Body is the result of an unlikely meeting between Tomasz Gudzowaty and Nan Goldin, who represent diametrically different personalities, sensibilities, and modes of artistic creation, yet both of whom stand behind stunningly clear, consistent visions. Goldin draws on Gudzowaty's rich archive to create her own narrative -- detached from its original thematic context and purpose to form a continuous flow of images that reaches a deeper, metaphysical dimension of sport. The people in the photographs -- flying, floating, upside down -- strive to escape, to liberate themselves from corporeal limitations, and to transcend their physical boundaries in order to attain a mystical state of mind. As Goldin lucidly puts it: "They are breaking the rules of how we are bound to the earth."--Publisher's statement
