Thanks to that infamous Anthony and The Johnsons album cover, an entire generation knows that particular image of Candy Darling on her deathbed snapped by Peter Hujar. But equally compelling for me is his iconic image of Susan Sontag, a shot that has become a signature representation of the peerless American intellectual. At Matthew Marks there is a show of 31 of Hujar's "East Village" photographs, shot between 1969 and 1985 and it shows that the range of that work allows you to process a wider spectrum of his work as landmark. That was what struck me about the pictures...the absolute individualism thereof. There is a united identity and artististic strategy but the life of each and every subject before the camera burns off the film with otherworldly prescience. Windows of the soul indeed. If there is only one show you see this month, this is absolutely the one.
