KQED reviews Peter Hujar: Love & Lust and Nan Goldin: Nine Self–portraits

PH.0193.tif

Peter Hujar, a New York based photographer, explores the individual personality’s of his portrait subjects and New York street life.

Peter Hujar knows that portraits in life are always, also, portraits in death. I am moved by the purity and delicacy of his intentions. If a free human being can afford to think nothing less than death, then these memento mori can exorcise morbidity as they evoke its sweet poetry and panic. –Susan Sontag
