The Changing Face of HIV

– photographs and words for World AIDS Day 2011

HIV has changed the life of each of the people whose faces you see here.
 
HIV has touched the life of all of us.
 
AIDS has a strange knack of showing up the cracks in our systems. It touches our taboos around sex and death, blood and cancer. It highlights uncomfortably the unjust distribution of resources and medication around the world.
 
And the advice for all of us (strangely whether we are HIV+ or not) is to get enough sleep, eat healthily, keep fit, play safely and be honest with those around and with ourselves.
 
If you look people in the eyes and share your concerns, you can share your knowledge and resources.
 
Each year, the Church of St Thomas the Martyr, Newcastle upon Tyne marks World AIDS Day. These commemorations alternate their focus between UK and world-wide concerns. The photographs below were featured in an exhibition at St Thomas’ in 2011.
 
Each of the people whose photographs appeared in the exhibition live in the North East of England.
