Over half of the pictures were created since 2000 and after her move from New York to Paris, where she currently lives. The Devil's Playground is the first major book to be published on Goldin's work since 1996 and it is by far her most important to date. This intense, roller-coaster ride through pain and pleasure is made bearable by the extraordinary beauty of the photographs. Voyuerism usually comes as a secreat obsession or sexual desire, that one experiences/enjoys by themselves.

Goldin’s art is also one of the clearest manifestations of the vitality of the realist tradition today, that tradition in literature and painting where everyday life and the most humble of beings are represented with dignity. Born in Washington DC, Goldin grew up in Boston where she began taking photographs at the age of 15.Every shot is the maximum moment of an encounter, that instant that inevitably precedes separation, the lens that closes, darkness. Since the early 1970s, Goldin has taken numerous photographs of her friends and 'family', which form a unique corpus of work. This multimedia work is made up of more than seven hundred slides projected and accompanied by musical passages that serve as the narrative voice. In the intensely haunting images of this “ Devil’s Playground“, the sky and the sea are not totally separate, and the air becomes thick.

Beautifully bound in red cloth, it was issued in a specially made box together with an original print entitled, "Guido floating, Levanzo, Sicily, 1999. Photography also became a mechanism for working through loss, and for preserving this loss ad infinitum.

In recent years, Goldin also has photographed magical landscapes like the intensely blue sea in a grotto in Capri, the Stromboli volcano steaming at dawn, ex-votos in Somma Vesuviana, or the smoking tar pits of Solfatara near Pozzuoli. Each is signed and numbered by Nan Goldin and comes with a special edition of The Devil's Playground that is beautifully bound, also individually signed and bound, signed and numbered. And so while still a teenager, she began to shoot ‘snapshots’, thousands of images, like most young people did during the 1970s and 1980s – before computers.

This book features a significant body of latest work by Goldin, including photographs from new series such as Still on Earth (1997-2001), 57 Days (2000) and Elements (1995-2003), many of which are previously unpublished.
