Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 56 pages. Published in 1994. Artist Book. The fourth title in the "Artspace Books" Series. A handsome uniform-look production by Artspace: Small-size volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Nan Goldin. Text by Klaus Kertess. Printed on archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Forum for contemporary artists. Collaborations of image and text by today's most innovative artists which challenge the culture in which we live and inscribe the vital social function of art. Features a debut short story by Klaus Kertess and gritty full-color photography by Nan Goldin taken on her visits to Thailand and the Philippines. There, the celebrated New York photographer took arresting photographs of adult male prostitutes that are slightly reminiscent of the breathtaking work Mary Ellen Mark did for their Indian female counterparts ("Falkland Road"). Nan Goldin's empathy and indeed, identification with her subjects is complete and has nothing to do with "social concerns". They are her adoptive friends and comrades, "the only people I wanted to meet in those countries". An absolute "must-have" title for Nan Goldin collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen on the front pastedown by the artist/photographer: "With memories of Manila. Love, Nan Goldin". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. There is no recipient named. The artist/photographer returned to the United States after living in Europe for the greater part of the previous decade (2000-2006). She made a very rare, sensational Chicago appearance. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the most beautiful signed copy we have ever seen. A rare signed copy thus. 25 color plates. Nan Goldin's "The Ballad of Sexual Dependency" is regarded as the most important photography book since "Diane Arbus". One of the most influential artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER NAN GOLDIN AND ARTSPACE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0963109537. Bookseller Inventory #
