Your ultimate guide to Nan Goldin

Internationally renowned for her documentation of love, fluid sexuality, glamour, beauty, death, intoxication and pain, Goldin’s photographs feature her life and those in it. Her visual language and “social portraiture” approach not only rejects the conventional limits of the medium of photography, it creates something unique: a mirror of herself, as well as the world. Having run away from home in her early teens, before being fostered by several families, Goldin did everything in her power to run away from the respectable world, her parents and the Jewish household she was brought up in.

The local and national press was instantly critical, but Giannopoulos was intrigued, and soon decided to start shooting them. “I like exploring subcultures and fringe communities; this was something that really sparked that interest and it was right on my doorstep so I had no excuse to not pursue it,” he says. “At the time I was shooting a project on the banger racing community, and moving straight into this seemed like an obvious thing to do…It felt like a natural segue – they explore similar themes of working class communities developing intriguing subcultures.”

Fade Like A Sigh – British Journal of Photography. A collaborative project by Rana Young and Zora J Murff handles some difficult family memories via new work and family photographs “Collaboration is a comfortable way of telling our stories in the company of someone else, as this content is too heavy for each of us to revisit alone,” says Rana Young, a Masters student at the University of Nebraska, who’s worked with fellow student Zora J Murff to make a series called Fade Like A Sigh.

Initially thrown together by sharing a studio, the pair got talking and soon realised they had much in common. Both come from the Midwest and take a similar approach to photographing “imagery that describes home, or place generally”; both grew up with an absent parent. “Our personal experiences of that are unique, but through conversation we found a commonality,” says Young. “It’s easy to assume that your exposure to a shared experience is different to someone else’s.” Behind the Scenes — GUP. In Behind the Scenes, Sergey Melnitchenko (b. 1991, Ukraine) gives us a glimpse at the off-stage doings of erotic dancers in a nameless club in China.

Behind the Scenes — GUP

Melnitchenko, who came to China to work as a dancer, gives us an unusually up-close vision of the club where he works. While subjects prepare to show themselves - to transform into the erotic ideal the public expects to see - Melnitchenko shows us the reality that makes this transformation possible. Contrary to the masked illusion created by the subjects’ stage performance, their life away from the stage is not a scene; the girls are taking selfies, some lie around exhausted, others stare bored into nothingness, put on their make-up, await their next performance.

Magnum Photos Photographer Portfolio. This Guy Spent the Mid-90s Living in a Travelling Rave Van. This year is the 20th anniversary of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, the legislation that effectively banned raves and sent the whole scene into the expensive confines of legitimate clubs and venues. To mark the occasion, photographer Tom Hunter is exhibiting his series "Le Crowbar" – a documentation of his time travelling through Europe in the mid-90s in a convoy of converted coaches, ambulances and buses, setting up raves and impromptu festivals. See it at the "Life on the Road" exhibition at LCC in London's Elephant and Castle. After relocating from Dorset to London at the age of 15 and spending some time as a tree pruner in the Royal Parks, Tom Hunter bought a year-long ticket to America.

It was on this trip that he began taking photos, but unfortunately, as he told me, "I came back and [none of the pictures] turned out. The lens must have been broken or something. " Tom Hunter.
