SILENCE

Order the exhibition


The access to the highest protection in matters of health is one of the fundamental richts of each human being, without any discrimination regarding race, religion, political or economic orientation, or social condition.
The right to health, WHO – 1997

With health as a central issue, an its social dimension as vector, Samuel Bollendorff has devoted the past five years to photographing the way we are all equal in front of illness and disease, but so very unequal in the access to treatment, in France as well as abroad. In 2004, the book and the exhibition SILENCE at the Maison des métallos in Paris, present this whole body of work. SILENCE is the answer to an interrogation on photography’s power as a tool for political thought.At the heart of this event for which 150 000 euros of public and private funds were raised, a series of forums invite the public, the medical profession and elected representatives to debate the issues approached by the images.

The event will bring together 5000 persons, during the month of March 2004.

Th exhibition consists of two independent series: :
- HOSPITAL SILENCE (69 photographs)
- AIDS SILENCE (32 portraits)
- and the film They just turned 80.
