POSITIVE LIVES (article first published : 2000-06-29)

Originating in Britain, the exhibition titled Positive Lives features images generated by local photographers in India, South Africa, Bangladesh, USA, Britain, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Australia. The exhibition will run for the duration of the XIII International Aids Conference from July 9 to 14 in the Durban Art Gallery’s Circular Gallery.

Positive Lives is a large-scale photo-documentary project committed to sharing the human stories of people living with HIV/AIDS. The project is the result of a partnership between the internationally acclaimed photographic agency Network photographers and the UK’s leading AIDS service organization - the Terrence Higgens Trust. The exhibition has toured internationally since 1993. As it develops, new chapters have been created in areas such as the United States, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and most recently Bangladesh, India and Australia.

A new Durban chapter has been commissioned from photographer Gideon Mendel for inclusion in the Amasiko exhibition. Digital projection of large images on external walls at night is an interesting addition to the exhibition for Durban.
