yesterday at Rebecca Kamhi gallery: her majesty Nan Goldin

i got to meet her in person, choose the outfit for her portrait, talk a little about clothes and her friend Rick (Owens that is), see the exhibition while it was being set up  and a shooting that should take a couple of hours took us five. what a persona.

here shot by photographer Sylvia Diamantopoulou

nan goldin was one of the first to do what is known as ‘intimacy photography’: she wasn’t looking for a theme to shoot, her life has always been the theme: autobiographical moments, friends, boyfriends, drug use, new-wave music scene, love, genre, sexuality.

the current exhibition at Rebbeca Kamhi gallery, which also includes a slide-show of her work on the lower floor
