Faces of AIDS: Photographic Display

Faces of AIDS: Photographic Display

 

 

Debbie Postlethwaite, RNP, MPH

Winter 2005 - Volume 9 Number 1

I was captivated by the Faces of AIDS photography exhibit when it was shown at the KP Oakland Regional Offices. Kaiser Permanente (KP) Northern California sponsored the display, and since 2002, the Faces of AIDS exhibit has traveled throughout the KP East Bay Service Area and Regional Offices. The hauntingly beautiful photos, and the individual stories with each photo, allow the viewer to relate to the people featured in a whole new light. Even though some of the people featured have passed on because of the disease, many are living with the disease, as are all their stories. Every December 1, World AIDS Day is celebrated and, in 2004, the event is appropriately focused on Women, Girls, HIV and AIDS as the theme of World AIDS Day. This population represents one of the fastest-growing number of new AIDS cases.
