The dark star of the underground and pioneering photographer Nan Goldin presents her photographic work at the Rebecca Camhi Gallery in Athens, Greece from 19 March to 29 May. The show includes new photographs, a selection of older photo series and a showing of 300 slides on the topic of children. Goldin's realistic viewpoint has created a following and she is now considered one of the most important photographers of our time, being particularly widely known to the general public.
Nan Goldin was born in 1953 in Washington and became interested in photography as an adolescent in Boston. Since the 1980s, she has given a new dimension to contemporary photography, creating her own personal style by combining artistic and documentary photography.
Nan Goldin's work covers a broad spectrum of subjects, though her portraits of fringe figures are best known. Her images speak about relationships of friendship, love and identity. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions at well-known institutions and galleries (Whitney Museum of American Art, Centre Georges Pompidou, Reina Sofia, Whitechapel Art Gallery and others). She lives and works in New York, Paris and London.
