1980s

In the 1980s, Nat Finkelstein’s work became largely autobiographical. During this time, he was also acutely addicted to cocaine. In 1987, Nat moved to Amsterdam, got clean, and subsequently emerged as an artist. Now dedicated to photography as fine art, he worked in video, installation and pioneered the use of digital printmaking. The first edition of “The Factory Years” was published in 1989.
