Nan Goldin Bold Tendencies Billboard Project

“My work has always come from empathy and love.”

Selected from her seminal series of photographs The Other Side, this billboard image is a homage to the extended family of drag queens that the artist lived with during the 1970s, and those she was close to during the 80s and 90s in Boston and New York.

Documenting the glamour and vulnerability of this culture and its participants, Goldin’s work is a celebration of life spent on the margins of society, giving voice to the rebellious and romantic lives they pursued, many of which have been lost over the last four decades.

Picnic on the Esplanade, Boston demonstrates Goldin’s personal and candid approach to photography, capturing the sense of family and love that united the group, joined together through shared beliefs to live life full and for the moment.
