Every 10 seconds somebody in the world dies from AIDS.
Over 24 million people have already died from AIDS. Over 40 million people are infected with HIV/AIDS.
The AIDS crisis is not over, but could become manageable: with pressure, and help, and purpose.
Pandemic: Imaging AIDS
In our world today, there are forty million people living with HIV/AIDS9forty million different stories of hardship, pain, and anger9but also of hope,courage, and resilience. These stirring and groundbreaking images from around the world bring us face-to-face with the epidemic. They have been used to document and to educate, to agitate and protest, to salute friends lost and mourn the deaths of family and strangers alike.
Pandemic: Imaging AIDS is a traveling exhibition of original cibachrome and silver gelatin photographs in varied formats by over 100 award-winning photographers and artists representing fifty countries. The collection, which tours internationally through 2005 beginning in Barcelona, Spain, presents twenty years of the photographic response to the epidemic. The exhibit captures the range of feeling the AIDS epidemic has engendered, and the changing reality for people living with AIDS, from the photographic community¹s controversial efforts to document the first AIDS patients to its emerging need to protest and memorialize. The legacy of this work, gathered from all corners of the world, is a call to action and a challenge to each of us: toward a world without AIDS.
