Candy Darling on her Deathbed, 1973. Peter Hujar.

Candy Darling was born James Lawrence Slattery, one of Andy Warhol’s superstars. Hujar gets us close… but we are never too intimate. As Darling stares beyond us, it is as if she is detached from their surroundings. 
It is often said that death was not far from his [Hujar’s] lens. As a gay man living through the height of the AIDS crisis in New York, he was part of a community that came face to face with its own mortality.
