NAN GOLDIN "CLEMENS AT LUNCH, 1999"
Nan Goldin (b. 1953) is unquestionably one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century.
Her strongest images are typically portraits; never sentimental or stylized.
In the 1980's she documented her social circle, characters often living on the margins of society, in New York City and beyond.
Goldin was the first to use the "slide show" format in a high-art setting and elevated the familiar snapshot into an art form.
A successor to Diane Arbus, her aesthetic and creative approach had a tremendous impact on both the medium and the art world.
Goldin's influence is particularly strongly manifested in the work of Wolfgang Tillmans and Ryan McGinley.
This image, from 1999, was printed in 2002 as a fundraiser for London's Whitechapel Art Gallery.
It is an affordable opportunity to acquire an iconic work by the inimitable Nan Goldin.
