Nan Goldin, 1972–74 and The Other Side, a slide installation

Nan Goldin... Ivy with Wigstand (1973, gelatin silver print). From Nan Goldin, 1972–74 and The Other Side, a slide installation at Matthew Marks Gallery. "...In the early 1970s, while living in Boston, Nan Goldin met a group of drag queens. They quickly became friends, then roommates, and subsequently her primary photographic subjects for several years. 'I first saw them—Ivy and Naomi and Colette—crossing the bridge near Morgan Memorial Thriftshop in downtown Boston. They were the most gorgeous creatures I'd ever seen. I was immediately infatuated... They became my whole world.'"
