Inescapable Hope

Working with the images in the Archive, knowing that they come from so many artists living with HIV and AIDS, I was drawn into their lives and then brought into a wider, deeper connection in the universe of the lives of those living with AIDS. I hope that the images I selected communicate the possibilities of hope and becoming. The warmth and strength of their colors and the inescapable pain and anger that I felt from them helped to refuel my passion for the struggle to eradicate HIV and AIDS.
