'Variety' booth, NYC, 1983/printed 2023

One of the most important and influential artists of her generation, Nan Goldin has revolutionized the art of photography through her frank and deeply personal photographs. Over the last 45 years she has created some of the most poignant images of the 20th and 21st centuries. Her work has explored notions of gender and definitions of normality. By documenting her life and the lives of her friends, Goldin gives a voice and visibility to her communities.

'Variety' booth features a lone woman working at a ticket booth. The image was taken on the set of Bette Gordon's now infamous 1983 film, Variety, which Goldin both collaborated on and starred in.
