QF Gallery in East Hampton, New York, showcases from the 3rd to the 18th of August Nan Goldin's 'Wish You Were Here'. An intimate exhibition curated by Carrie Mackin, that includes eleven color photographs from the 1980's to the present. 'Wish You Were Here' reveals the leisurely spirt of the artist's time at her home in Sag Harbor and her countless summers abroad.

Considered one of the most important photographers of her generation, Nan Goldin is known for her intensely personal, sexual and confrontational imagery. This show includes a mix of new and iconic photographs of Goldin's friends, children and other loved ones reveling in the long, sun-filled summer days. 'Wish You Were Here' divulges as much about Goldin as they do about the subjects themselves.
