Nan Goldin (b 1953) is an American photographer and activist whose work explores LGBTQ+ subcultures, sexual intimacy, HIV/AIDS crisis, and the opioid epidemic. Now, a new documentary film, All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Laura Poitras is set to release in the UK in January 2023. It is an “epic, emotional and interconnected story” about Nan “told through her slideshows, intimate interviews, ground-breaking photography, and rare footage of her personal fight to hold the Sackler family accountable for the overdose crisis”.
“This small volume is a whole lot of fun! Having taken up mixology as my lockdown hobby, I take the contents very seriously (I shall be toasting the New Year with a Marlene Dietrich), but even if the cocktails aren’t for you, the bios and illustrations of 60 iconic women from Alison Bechdel to Yayoi Kusama justify finding a slot in the bookcase for “Free the Tipple”.
