NAN GOLDIN "SIMON ON THE SUBWAY NYC, 1998"
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.
A successor to Diane Arbus and Larry Clark, 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 is notable as Goldin typically shoots her peers, and on occasion the young children of close friends.
Teenagers are almost completely absent from her oeuvre, and this young man posses an innocence not typically seen in Goldin's portraits of men.
