Terry Richardson: There was this whole scene.

Nan Goldin: It was just very underground. 

Richardson: It was pretty intense.

Goldin: They were dying of AIDS.

Richardson: They're so innocent.

Goldin: To the beautiful museum go only artists and elites. I went to the movies.

Richardson: We had a penthouse on Jane Street, and one night I walked out onto the balcony and my mom was making out with Kris Kristofferson.

Goldin: How do you pronounce his name?

Richardson: Yes and no. Yeah, it really fucked me up. 

Golden: It has an invented name, but it is a real place.

Richardson: Her pictures are incredible.

Goldin: My diary is really boring. It is never respecting the way the other person is.

Richardson: Yeah, that was like a year and a half of karate.

Goldin: Every time I go through something scary, traumatic, I survive by taking pictures.

Richardson: I was in a lot of garage bands, I had a lot of fun.

Goldin: That kind of violence the men play with. I always use Leica.

Richardson: He pulled a gun on me one night, a .38.

Goldin: It was incredibly wild.
