A Ground Breaking Work Now Back in Print.
The Ballad of Sexual Depency is Nan Goldin's visual diary chronicling the struggle for intimacy and understanding between fris and lovers collectively described as her "tribe." Goldin's work describes a world that is visceral, charged, and seething with desire. It charts the loss of innocence through the barrooms and parties at the social periphery of New York's East Village and through the harrowing worlds of drugs and prostitution.
