作品前言:

虽然《80年代的80个故事:在艾滋病阴影下的生和死》作品集由苏珊·都利和苏珊·克罗维茨两位摄影师的个人作品集合而成,但是却明显体现出了两位摄影师相似的视角。她们都采用社会纪实摄影的方法展示了20世纪80年代艾滋病危机肆虐期间流行的黑白摄影技术。该作品集中集结了大量的作品,包含了每位摄影师的40幅作品,这些作品中呈现的画面探究了当时他们所处环境和文化的视觉交汇。

 

都利女士致力于创作纪实风格的作品。“我创作的目的是使作品能够展现出人类的状态及其独特的风格与处境,”她说到,“虽然大部分人并不相信艾滋病普遍存在,但当我意识到其影响力时,就创作了这些能够反映艾滋病危机的作品。”

 

克罗维茨女士尤其喜欢用照相机来记录普通人的日常生活。在此次展览中,她展示的是80年代艾滋病危机高峰期间在切里格罗夫拍摄的照片。她通过视觉讲述了“在同性社区的艰难处境中探索人类状态的复杂性。”与苏珊·都利的作品不同的是,苏珊·克罗维茨的作品探索的是在黑暗时期同性恋者是如何快乐地生活,而不是捕捉那些 艾滋病患者的痛苦经历。她所著的一本书《切里格罗夫的入侵照片》将与2016年春季出版。

 

随着目前艾滋病有复苏的迹象出现,这些作品将会重新受到关注。

While “80s from the 80's: living and dying in the shadow of AIDS” by photographers Susan Dooley and Susan Kravitz consists of two separate solo bodies of work, there are striking similarities in the vision of these two photographers. Ms. Dooley and Ms. Kravitz share the tradition of social documentary photography and both are presenting black and white photographs taken in the 1980's during a time consumed by the AIDS crisis. The images that comprise these bodies of work - 40 for each photographer - explore visual intersections reflective of the environments and cultures in which they were taken.

Ms. Dooley considers her work to be illustrative of her documentary style. “My usual goal is to make images that represent the human condition as well as the unique character and situation of the subject,” she said. "This work was made as a response to the AIDS crisis when I realized how it affected everyone, though most were in denial about its pervasiveness.”

Ms. Kravitz is interested in using her camera to explore the everyday behavior of ordinary people. In this exhibition she presents photographs taken in Cherry Grove during the height of the AIDS crisis in the '80's. Her visual narrative... “explores the complexities of the human condition during a difficult time in the gay community.” Unlike Susan Dooley's photographs, which capture the painful experiences of AIDS patients, Susan Kravitz's photos explore the ways in which members of this LGBT community celebrated life during this dark time. A book of her Cherry Grove Invasion photographs will be published in the Spring 2016.

With the recent resurgence of HIV/AIDS these works take on renewed significance.
