The ballad of sexual dependency by Nan Goldin( Book )
20 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Goldin charts the loss of innocence through barrooms and parties on the social periphery of New York's East Village and through the harrowing worlds of drugs and prostitution. The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggle for intimacy and understanding between friends, and lovers--collectively described by Nan Goldin as her "tribe." Her work describes a world that is visceral, charged, and seething with life ... 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."--Publishers description

Variety : photographs by Nan Goldin, from the film by Bette Gordon by James Crump( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Variety: Photographs by Nan Goldin compiles the still photographs Nan Goldin created for director Bette Gordon's now infamous 1983 independent film, Variety, and offer a rare glimpse into this artist's symbiotic working process. This work contains the hallmarks of Goldin's early photographs, while also links to the Lower East Side bohemian milieu from which she often unflinchingly mined her subjects, and the Variety still photographs display the influence of filmmaking on Goldin's prolific output and especially the independent directors that helped establish the nascent downtown film scene in the early 1980s. Hovering unsettlingly between fiction and reality, "documentary style" and art photography, Variety: Photographs by Nan Goldin reveals a curious and previously unexamined aspect of Goldin's iconic career." "Variety: Photographs by Nan Goldin provides a window into the collision of music, club life, and art production that colored the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and is an important addition to Nan Goldin's oeuvre."--Jacket

Children have been one of Nan Goldin's ongoing photographic subjects, and they have provided some of her most moving and intimate works. Eden and After presents her selection of just some of these photographs, which include portraits of the children of Nan's close friends. Through these unique portraits, Nan presents a complex investigation of childhood. Some photographs depict children alone, others show them in familial and social groups. From pregnancy and newborns through to teenagers, some subjects have been documented by Nan through their entire lives. The portraits capture children in their vastly changing emotional states, from lonely and introverted to their most exuberant, literally flying through the air.--Publisher

Documentary examines the life of the American photographer, Nan Goldin. When her older sister committed suicide at the age of 18, Nan Goldin, then 14, leaves home, armed with an overwhelming compulsion to photograph everyone in her life. She later documents friends as they begin to die of AIDS & she realises how little her work can preserve: her images capture the slipping away of those lives, and what those friends had meant to her. Nan Goldin's photographs chronicle an intensely personal journey through the New York artistic underground over the last two decades. This program is an intimate account of Nan Goldin's life and work, from her upbringing in a middle class suburb of Washington to the wild party years of the 70s and 80s in New York, her own drug addiction and the devastating impact of AIDS on her community
