Nan Goldin meets Yukio Kobayashi: Naked New York
photographed by Nan Goldin Matsuda Autumn/Winter 1996
"I was surrounded by drug abuse. It was something that was always there.
The editor, the photographer, everybody was smoking or shooting drugs, so it was natural for me. I just thought that was the way things worked.
Did I shoot heroin? No, I sniffed it….I looked so skinny, with black circles under my eyes. It makes me sick, so sick, that’s what they wanted….
My habit became a full-time job….It cost money but I had money. If you give a 15-year-old thousands of dollars, she’s going to buy lots of shoes, clothes – whatever she is into at the time. Magazines will talk shit about you but they’ll still book you.”
