Nan Goldin: The Devil's Playground with 'Guido Floating, Levanzo, Sicily'
Limited collector's edition with a cibachrome print.
This monograph presents a major collection of photographs by Nan Goldin (b.1953). Since the 1980s, Goldin has consistently created photographs that are intimate and compelling: they tell personal stories of relationships, friendships and identity, while chronicling different eras and exposing the passage of time.
This book features a significant body of work by Goldin, including photographs from series such as Still on Earth (1997-2001), 57 Days (2000) and Elements (1995-2003). Laid out in diary-like sequences by Goldin herself, the material is both courageously candid and affirmative. The photographs are grouped into themed chapters, between which are interspersed texts, poems and lyrics by prominent writers, including Nick Cave, Catherine Lampert, Cookie Mueller and Richard Price.
Guido Floating, Levanzo demonstrates Goldin's fascination with the beauty and vulnerability of the human form immersed in water as she witnesses the tranquility and isolation of her long-term collaborator and friend.
