AIDS SILENCE

AIDS SILENCE is  a series in three instalments dedicated to the problem of inequality in acess to tratment and to the consequences of a fearsome scourge. While maintaining a connection with public health issues, Samuel Bollendorff proposes a personal photographic writing on 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.
