You’ve probably heard that Robert Pattinson has become the new face of Dior Homme. What you may not know is that the famous, controversial photographer who’s responsible for his ads is Nan Goldin, who grew up in Lexington and studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Goldin (inset) has locally inspired work in the Institute of Contemporary Art’s permanent collection. Her images don’t appear to be on display at the moment, but you can check them out on the museum’s website.
