Austin Faces AIDS: Portraits of People Living with HIV and AIDS is a multimedia project whose aim is to increase HIV and AIDS awareness and reduce stigma by putting a local face to the statistics and the disease.
For a year I visited with, photographed and recorded the stories of 16 individuals from all walks of life, sexual orientation and gender who are living with HIV/AIDS in Austin, Texas.
There are an estimated 33 million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS. 490,696 people are living with the disease in America. 61,595 are living in the state of Texas and 5,505 are living with HIV/AIDS in Austin, Texas.
This project was a collaboration with AIDS Services of Austin
