||Gail S. Goodman (b. 1952) created the "Sal and Me" series as a gift and tribute to her friend Sal, who had AIDS and was losing a sense of his own body. The images in the series create a deliberate ambiguity so that, like Sal, viewers struggle to ascertain what body part--and whose body--they are viewing.
Goodman's photographic work, which addresses AIDS and other aspects of glbtq culture, has been featured in more than fifty exhibitions, though "Pink and Bent" is the first exhibition in which she has participated in more than ten years.
In addition to her artistic work as a photographer, Goodman has worked as a photojournalist for the Greenwich Village Press and has archived many photographs of St. Mark's Bathhouse, a landmark in the history of gay New York City.
