Goldin’s Instagram account makes its debut at the same time that Steidl Books has re-released Nan Goldin: The Beautiful Smile–the memoir in which Goldin famously photographed, writes The New York Times, the subjects who “have been those closest to her: Transsexuals, cross-dressers, drug users, lovers, all people she befriended when she moved to New York” and who lived in what mainstream critics would coldly call the ‘margins of society’.” The highly-praised book is now out again.
