Rolsalind Solomon, Portraits in the Time of AIDS, 1988

Solomon’s portraits during the plague are harrowing, empathetic, confusing, of the moment and timeless. The exhibit is in New York at Bruce Silverstein until August 2.

One of our greatest living photographers; Solomon’s body of work is evidence that intelligent documentary portraits, without conceptual novelties, will always remain one of photography’s primary modes. A wide collection of Solomon’s work, 1700 photos, is hosted at the Center for Creative Photography site.
