NAN GOLDIN "BEA WITH WHIP, BOSTON 1972"
Nan Goldin’s first body of work focused on drag queens and transexuals 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.
During the seventies Goldin worked exclusively in black and white and would switch to color while in New York City.
“Bea with Whip, Boston” is an early and iconic image of Goldin’s that was printed in 2007 as a fundraiser for addiction research.
An important and preferred image from Goldin’s early oeuvre at an accessible price point.
