Gosta, Guido - Ten Years After Nan Goldin: Naples 1986-1996
Presents portraits made during the photographers' stay in Naples in 1986 and a return visit in 1996;
This book tells the story of Nan Goldin's relationship with Naples and the people who have been important to her there. In 1986, the year she finished her famous book, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, she left Manhattan for Europe. Along with old friends like Cookie Mueller, she went ot Italy, to Naples, where she made portraits of the city and the friends she made during her stay. Ten years later, after the success of her mid-life retrospective, I'll Be Your Mirror, she went back, and was inspired to make new pictures.
Recognized internationally for her intimate and compelling images, the American photographer Nan Goldin (born 1953) has lived and worked in Boston, New York, Berlin and in Paris, her current home. Since the early 1970s Goldin has taken numerous photographs of her friends and 'family', which form a significant and important body of work. She is most famous for her Ballad of Sexual Dependency photographs, a constantly changing slide show of approximately 750 photographs set to music. Goldin's life and friends became the focus of her work - a diary of friends and lovers in Europe and America, in the underground and gay scene.
