ORPHANED BY HIV-AIDS
A project to create a global portrait of HIV and AIDS through the eyes of the children ophaned by the disease. The Most Important Picture traveled to areas in Uganda heavily impacted by HIV and conducted workshops with teens affected by HIV and AIDS to teach them basic photography skills and empower them to tell their stories.
The images and texts from this project highlight the people who are surviving, in spite of the fear, misunderstanding and discrimination that surround their disease.
I believe I can fly.
I took this image because I know one day, one time, I will fly and travel in some countries...
I also know that I can work hard in order to get to my goals.
Even if my parents are dead, I know I will fly through photography.
I am sorry for your absence because I am missing you because you here giving me advice and to make me understanding how the world is but now I am sorry for you. May God bless you and rest in peace. Amen.
