Nan Goldin, Fashion Photographer!

"Documentary photographer Nan Goldin, known for her exploration of gender politics and producing intimate and often autobiographical images incorporating themes of love, friendship and sexuality, recently shot her first-ever ad campaign, for Bottega Veneta. 

Creative director Tomas Maier has followed Goldin’s work and asked her to partner with the brand. “Nan’s work is intensely personal, with a sincere and unusual focus on the individual,” said Maier. Goldin shot the campaign in Staten Island, N.Y., and it will break in February fashion titles"

I have long been a great fan of the photographer Nan Goldin. My career began with an internship at the Village Voice back when that newspaper was known for cool and edgy reporting. It included a monthly fashion magazine called View whose editors liked working with the sort of photographers who dance to the beat of a different drum. 
Nan Goldin was one of them. Shot in the East Village Russian Baths, "Masculine/Feminine" showed two popular styles of intimate apparel, racy lace and boyish basics. Some things never change!
