Joey in My Mirror at Hornstr., 1992

The haunting beauty of Joey recurs in many portraits by Nan Goldin. This one, taken in Berlin in 1992, is often paired to a similar picture, taken in New York in 1999. It’s not a coincidence that in both pictures a Clarins product makes its appearance, but this shouldn’t come as a surprise: products by the French brand were incredibly famous in those years. Personally I was very familiar with Eau Dynamisante and with the glass bottle with white cap seen above.

It’s the liquid foundation Le Teint Mat Multi Éclat. My sister loved it! It was a staple in her make-up case.
