Nan Goldin (1953 -)

An american female documentary photographer. She is a friend of photographer David Armstrong, this was also the man who introduced her to the gay- and transsexual communities back in the early 70's. In about 1985 many of her close friends started dying from AIDS, and she has ever since been influenced by this in her work.
This first picture is from her heart touching series of Gilles Dusein and Gotscho. Read a bit more about the series here.
