"There is a popular notion, that the photographer is by nature a voyeur, the last one invited to the party. But I'm not crashing; this is my party. This is my family, my history." --Nan Goldin
For 20 years, Nan Goldin has presented groundbreaking and controversial images of hard-drug subcultures, transsexual communities, and even suicide. Devil's Playground, a personal collection published in 2003, was Goldin's first major book since 1996. It's a photographic diary of her life and the people in it, with chapters arranged chronologically and in themes. The images are peppered with excerpts from prominent writers including Nick Cave, Catherine Lampert, Cookie Mueller, and Richard Price. Candid and beautiful in every way, this book exudes raw emotion. It's one of the best gifts I've received, and the most inspirational book I own.
