Few artists have suceeded in creating a body of work as uncompromisingly honest and tender as Nan Goldin’s. Couples and Loneliness presents a collection of images gathered from across Goldin’s photographic career. The collection represents the thematic core of Goldin's work and vision, and explores themes of love, loss, sexuality, intoxication, pain, and her ongoing obsession of the documention of those around her.
The book is narrated throughout by Goldin, offering a poetic backing to the work and anecdotal insight into particular images.
