Nan Goldin: The Ballad of Sexual Dependency at MoMA, NY

The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is the diary I let people read.” From behind the lens cult photographer Nan Goldin bared all, chronicling intimate moments of love and loss and the struggle for understanding among close friends and lovers. Taken in the years spanning 1979 and 1986, in New York, Boston, Berlin and elsewhere, Goldin’s candid and often confronting photographs exhibited first in 1985 as a slideshow presentation and were subsequently published into what would become a photobook classic. Now, the collection of almost 700 snapshot-like portraits is on display at the Museum of Modern Art, New York through to February 12, 2017.
