A NEW PICTURE OF HEALTH. With funding from United Nations Foundation and PEPFAR, I led a documentary film crew to Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Indonesia to direct a film documenting progress of the efforts of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.
During production, I took the stills in this exhibit; images of HIV negative children born to HIV positive mothers, of sex workers forming HIV prevention peer groups, of prisoners receiving methadon treatment to stop the sharing of needles, of women taking control of their reproductive health, and of communities fighting together against tuberculosis and malaria.
There is still much suffering and many challenges, but stories and images of lives recovered and futures restored are becoming more commmon.
I feel my role has been successful when it provides a platform for stakeholders around the world to tell their own stories.
I am especially drawn to characters and images of communities just beginning to understand that they do not have to die early from diseases of poverty, of people awakening for the first time to the possibility of a future. And once people have renewed their health, they do what anybody would do: they care for their families, they return to work, and they lift their communities.
