The Ballad of Sexual Dependency

Author: Nan Goldin
Publisher: Aperture
ISBN: 1597112100
Release Date: 1986
Genre: Photography

The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggle for intimacy and understanding between friends, family, and lovers--collectively described by Goldin as her "tribe." Her work describes a world that is visceral, charged, and seething with life. First published in 1986, this reissue recognizes the persistent relevance and freshness of Nan Goldin's cutting-edge photography. Her lush color photography and candid style demand that the viewer go beyond the surface to encounter a profound intensity. As Goldin writes: "Real memory, which these pictures trigger, is an invocation of the color, smell, sound, and physical presence, the density and flavor of life." Through an accurate and detailed record of her life, Ballad reveals Goldin's personal odyssey as well as a more universal understanding of the different languages men and women speak, and the struggle between autonomy and dependency. Over the past twenty-five years, the influence of Ballad on photography and other aesthetic realms has continually grown, making the work a contemporary classic. Nan Goldin's story of urban life on the fringe was the swan song of an era that reached its peak in the early eighties. Yet it has captured an important element of humanity that is transcendent: a need to connect. This new paperback edition of The Ballad of Sexual Dependency has been printed using new scans and separations created by master separator Robert Hennessey from Goldin's original transparencies, rendering them with unparalleled sumptuousness and impact.

Genre:

"The Beautiful Smileis my favorite book." -Nan Goldin The Beautiful Smile, unavailable since its original publication on the occasion of Nan Goldin's (born 1953) Hasselblad Award of 2007, is finally back in print. The Hasselblad Award is considered the most important international photography prize in the world today; since 1980, award winners have included some of the greatest names the medium has known. 2007 winner Nan Goldin is easily one of the most significant photographers of our time. Adopting the direct aesthetics of snapshot photography, she has documented her own life and that of her friends and others on the margins of society for more than 30 years, offering frank depictions of drug abuse, cross-dressing and alternative sexualities. Her intimate photographs depict urban lives in New York and Europe in the 1970s, '80s and '90s, a period massively determined by HIV and AIDS. Her practice of photography as memoir, as a means of protection against loss and as an act of preservation, as well as her use of the slide show, resonates in the work of photographers of recent generations. This classic volume, which the photographer has called her favorite of all of her books, is a moving homage to the work of one of the most eminent artists of our time.
