    About The Work

    This special edition of the Nan Goldin book The Devil's Playground is beautifully bound, individually signed and numbered, and presented in a specially made box together with an original Goldin print, Valerie in the taxi, Paris, which captures a candid moment between friends, laid-back but with an apparent intensity to Valerie's conversation that the camera rarely captures.

    The collectors edition book features a significant body of latest work by Goldin, including photographs from new series such as “Still on Earth” (1997-2001), “57 Days” (2000) and “Elements”(1995-2003), many of which are previously unpublished. Laid out in diary-like sequences by Goldin herself, the material is both courageously candid and affirmative. The photographs are grouped into themed chapters, between which are interspersed texts, poems and lyrics by prominent writers, including Nick Cave, Catherine Lampert, Cookie Mueller and Richard Price. The Devil's Playground is the first major book to be published on Goldin's work since 1996 and it is by far her most important to date.
