NAN GOLDIN "KENNY PUTTING ON MAKE-UP, BOSTON 1973"
Nan Goldin’s first body of work focused on drag queens and trans-women in her home town of Boston and later New York City.
Goldin established herself as, an arguably superior, successor to Diane Arbus.
Arbus was fascinated by “otherness” and depicted subjects that ranged from curious to exceptional to freaky.
Goldin’s “subjects” on the other hand, were her friends. As a result Goldin’s images are more intimate, spontaneous and warm. Goldin was just older than 20 when she took these photos.
An important and preferred image from Goldin’s early oeuvre at an accessible price point.
