Overview

A longstanding photobook classic, and the work for which New York photographer is best known, The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggle for intimacy and understanding between friends and lovers collectively described by Goldin as her “tribe.” Her work describes a world that is visceral and seething with life. As Goldin writes: “Real memory, which these pictures trigger, is an invocation of the color, smell, sound and physical presence, the density and flavor of life.”

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Over 100 full-page color photographs chronicle the search for intimacy by Goldin and her circle of friends in an urban culture on the edge that peaked in the 1980s. They depict mostly young people interacting with each other, sometimes sexually, or with their surroundings, either comfortable or alien. Published in cloth in 1986, and also available in multimedia and videotape versions. No scholarly paraphernalia. Goldin's photographs have been exhibited in major museums and galleries. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
