NAN GOLDIN "PATRICK AND TERI, WEDDING NIGHT" 1987

Nan Goldin (b. 1953) is unquestionably one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. 

A successor to Diane Arbus, her aesthetic and creative approach had a tremendous impact on both the medium and the art world. 

Goldin was the first to use the "slide show" format in a high-art setting.

Beginning in the 1970's Goldin took candid shots of her lovers and friends - notably drag queens and trans women. In the 1980's she documented her social circle, characters often living on the margins of society, in New York City and beyond.

"Patrick and Teri on their wedding night, NYC" is one of Goldin's most iconic images: raw, ambiguous, intimate, both sensual and unsettling.  

The intensity (or fragility) of amorous relationships is a key theme in Goldin's work. During the late 1980's Goldin published several images of this New York couple; at their wedding or reading Baudelaire in bed for example. But it is this image, with its combination of vulnerability and passion that is best known. 

The image was included in Nan Goldin's seminal touring exhibition "I'll Be Your Mirror" which was held at the Whitney Museum (NYC),  Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg,  the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), the Fotomuseum (Winterthur), the Kunsthalle Wien (Vienna) and The National Museum (Prague) during 1996 through 1999.
