The Graying of AIDS in Durban


Everyone loves Sithandizele, our first participant from Botswana!

In July, the Graying of AIDS team attended the International AIDS Conference in Durban for our third installment of creating portraits and collecting oral histories on aging and HIV/AIDS. Over the course of five super productive and stimulating days we were able to interview and photograph some amazing people from Botswana, Canada, India, Jamaica, Mauritania, Mexico, Namibia, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, Uganda, the United States, and Zimbabwe for the ongoing Stories From An Aging Pandemic archive.

Hat off to my my wonderful project partner Naomi Schegloff and the ever awesome Samantha Reinders, who joined us for the South Africa production. We’ll be posting new work later this year, likely around Dec 1st World AIDS Day.
