Through Positive Eyes is a photography and storytelling project created in collaboration with 130 “artivists” living with HIV/AIDS. The project serves “as a call to action to bring an end to the stigma of HIV,” writes Aperture in the press release. “Stigma grows out of fear, which prevents people from getting themselves tested and treated,” writes Gere. In the exhibition, a multitude of voices coalesce around the core belief that challenging stigma is the most effective way to combat the epidemic. That’s what Through Positive Eyes is all about,” writes Gere.
