Über diesen Titel


Twelve years ago it was unknown, then it was a threat only to gay men and drug abusers, now it has escalated to being on of the greatest of public health threats throughout society. This book covers areas not handled in previous AIDS titles which have been generally about the horrors of, and coping with the disease. This book looks at the more positive sides - longer survival rates, the improving quality of life afforded by medical advances, and the network of support groups and supporters now available. Three photo essays in the book cover a support group of people caring for strangers, a couple who adopted five children with AIDS, and the awareness campaign.

From Library Journal:

In her introductory essay to Living with AIDS, Goldberg elucidates both the strengths and ultimate failing of these two black-and-white photo collections. Opening with an analysis of popular-media coverage of AIDS, she notes that "the news all too often opted for cheap drama." In these two books, both photographers avoid easy sentiment, neither pitying nor lionizing their subjects. Lopes's work is perhaps more revealing, capturing PWAs (people with AIDS) and their friends in their own environments. Lopes has compiled three separate essays. Analogous to his earlier collection on the Viet Nam memorial (The Wall, LJ 11/15/87), his first collection here captures the emotional responses of visitors to the AIDS quilt. His next group offers dual portraits of PWAs and their volunteer caregivers, called buddies. The third collection offers candid and posed pictures of John and Sharon Boyce and their adopted HIV-positive children. In Living Proof, Jones poses her PWA and HIV-positive subjects in the studio, inviting them to bring along whoever or whatever gives them strength. These are meant to be uplifting photos, exploring the positive energy and attitudes of her subjects, and they succeed on that level. As in Lopes's book, however, there is an implicit expectation of a shared insight that both of these books fail to deliver. As Goldberg concludes, "The extent and ramifications of AIDS...cannot be compassed by photography." Recommended only for large AIDS collections.
