Nan Goldin is Supreme's Muse for its Spring/Summer 2018 Artist Series

The collaboration features some of the photographer’s key work.

Supreme announced Cindy Sherman as a collaborator for its Artist Series last year and now the New York City-based skate brand has unveiled its latest muse as American photographer, Nan Goldin.

Goldin is an iconic figure in the photography industry. She encountered many struggles in life after losing her sister to suicide when she was 11 and at 15, she turned to photography as a way to remember and cherish memories with her subjects. Her candid, documentary-style work was often seen as controversial – she didn’t shy away from very real topics that surrounded her life and that of her friends and family, like addiction, sex, the LGBT community and HIV.

The photographer moved to Boston to live and study when she was 18 – it was here that she encountered and befriended a community of drag queens, who have since become a key theme within her work. She later moved to New York where she continued her photographic life diary, sharing imagery of the post-punk scene as well as the infamous Bowery neighbourhood as well as images from her daily life, encounters and friends. She’s since gone on to publish several books chronicling her work as well as solo shows – including “The Ballad of Sexual Dependancy” which was shown at the MOMA between 2016-2017.

For this collaboration, Supreme has selected Goldin’s work from the ’70s and ’90s to produce a capsule collection of coach jackets, hoodies, T-shirts and skateboard decks, all boasting some of the photographers most recognized imagery. If you want to know more about the images used, the names and year of the works are listed below.

– Misty and Jimmy Paulette in a taxi, NYC 1991
– Kim in Rhinestones, Paris 1991
– Nan as a dominatrix, Cambridge MA 1978

The Nan Goldin x Supreme spring/summer 2018 collection will be available in-store at Supreme’s locations in New York, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London, Paris, and also on its online store from March 29. Japan will see a March 31 release date.
