How to put faces on  its statistics, which no longer speak, as they are so inhumane ?

While remaining within the continuity of health problems, Samuel Bollendorff offers a uniquephotographic record of the disease.

Going beyond the documentary tradition, the AIDS SILENCE series consists exclusively of individuals portraits of people gazing directly into the camera, paired with a few simple words about their condition as AIDS patients.

The texts talk about the horror and the injustice of their poor access to treatment, the images show the humanity and dignity of their gaze.
