The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggle for intimacy and understanding
between friends, family, and lovers—collectively described by Goldin as her “tribe.” Her work describes a
world that is visceral, charged, and seething with life. First published in 1986, this reissue recognizes the
persistent relevance and freshness of Nan Goldin’s cutting-edge photography.
