Nan Goldin revolutionised photography in the 1980s in intensely personal portraits that place her life at the centre of her art. The MEP's holdings include prints from her iconic series "The Ballad of Sexual Dependency", in which she captures the struggles and conflicts inherent in romantic relationships in photos of herself and her friends. The MEP collection also includes images from her series "Gilles and Gotscho", which dates from the beginning of the AIDS epidemic.
