The Other Side Book Cover

Nan Goldin

The Other Side

Published by Steidl

In this expanded version of the seminal book The Other Side, first published in 1993 – Goldin animates the photographs by introducing voices to the stories captured within the pages of the book. Taken over four decades and touching upon the AIDS epidemic that began to devastate her dearest friends – these intimate portraits are even more timely ‘at a time when the discourse around gender and sexual orientation is evolving, The Other Side traces some of the history that informs this new visibility.’ This book plays homage to a community of people, many of whom she has lost over the last four decades.
