Nan Goldin, meg - igjen?

Ja. Jeg ville si enda mer om Nan Goldin men så sitter jeg her og lar meg fange i tøyset om at hvis jeg skal skrive mer om Nan Goldin så må jeg forstå og skrive alt.

Vekk med den tanken

Jeg leste enda en artikkel om henne og den svarte på noen av de tingene jeg lurte på etter at jeg oppdaget Ballad of Sexual Dependency. F.eks hva hun gjorde etterpå.



Hun har tatt motebilder. Blant annet. Dette er av Kate Moss on her white Horse as Lady Godiva, Highgate Cemetary.
Bill Clinton anklaget henne for å oppfinne heroin chic.

Nan Goldin was at the gym riding an exercise bike when she saw on the TV that President Clinton 'blames Dan Goldin for heroin chic.'
The sound was down and she read the headline from the screen, so she still has no idea whether it was Clinton or the caption writer who changed her gender.



Her er enda et bilde av Kate Moss. Sansynligvis et Nan Goldin har tatt for Stella McCartney for britiske Vogue.

Hun har arbeidet med søsterens selvmord.
"My knowledge of my sister's experience becomes stronger and stronger" she says. In 2004 she photographed the mental hospitals and locked wards her sister had been in, and visited the train tracks where she died.

Bildet av Nan Goldin som sitter på tog og lar skinnene fare forbi er sikkert et av dem. På bilde-google er varianter av dette fotografiet beskåret slik at bare ansiktet til Goldin er med, ingen togskinner.



She tries to photograph everything she goes through. "My camera has saved my life. It's made bearable things that feel unbearable".

I The Ballad of Sexual Dependency viser hun sider av forholdet sitt til Brian, this big love affair that was sort of a threesome between him and me and drugs.



One of the most famous images was taken with a cable release and shows him sitting on her bed, turned away from her and smoking.

Jeg lurte på det med hvordan hun tok det bildet.
Ledning ja, det er alltid en mulighet.



The most harrowing image shows her bloodied and broken face, one month after he nearly battered her to death in a Berlin hotel room. She needed major surgery and nearly lost the sight in her left eye;
it was the end of the relationship.

"It was really hard to live knowing that the person you loved had tried to kill you. So I started snorting drugs constantly. I was on the road, showing my slide show all over the world - and making enemies everywhere."

Nå bor Nan Goldin i Paris og har ødelagt hånda si.
Two years ago, Nan was taking pictures on the set of Mira Nair's film Monsoon Wedding in New Delhi when she fell 3.5m into an empty swimming pool. Her hand was smashed and in a clumsy first attempt to repair it, a surgeon took away so much bone that she cannot now turn it. Recently, a Chinese doctor has been treating her for the pain and she's hoping further surgery will help, but since this accident, she's been mostly celibate: My physical life has been more about pain than pleasure.
