Youth, Heroin, and AIDS through the Lens of Photographic Practices

(p.120) 6. Yolanda
Emotional Bodies

María Rosón

University of Illinois Press

Through an analysis of the fanzine Yolanda (Ignacio Navas, 2014), this chapter unpacks the subaltern memories of the last youth generation to experience the transition from the Franco dictatorship to democracy in Spain, whose lives were directly affected by drug consumption and the spread of HIV. Taken at the end of the 1980s and 1990s, Yolanda and Gabriel’s photographs are both the raw material used to construct Navas’s fanzine and a resistant legacy. They illustrate the other effects of Spain’s entrance into neoliberal structures, effects often left out of hegemonic historical narratives about the transition. This photographic corpus performs a way of being young that intersects with disenchantment, or desencanto, and the impossibility of imagining the self politically in a collective way.

Keywords:   Subaltern Memory, Vernacular Photography, Drug Consumption, HIV, Youth, Spanish Transition
