Together with twenty 35mm color transparencies of the set, a small hard-cover book of the portfolio by the artist, and a postcard for the gallery opening at Third Floor Gallery at Ryerson University in Toronto. Also included is a copy of View Camera's May/June 1993 edition, of which this portfolio is featured on pages 12-16. All contained in a 23-1/4 x 31-1/4 x 3-1/2 inch traveling print box. The TB-AIDS Diary was created in 1989 to show how the stigma people were facing with AIDS was not unlike the stigma TB sufferers faced earlier in the century. Troeller's mother had TB in the 1920s and she used her mother's diary and snapshots to make collages that were then photographed with the 20 x 24 Polaroid camera. These were paired with collages made with the letters and snapshots from the mother of a son who had AIDS. Other prints are in the collection of the Smithsonian and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. – Courtesy of Heritage Auctions
