Description

Riveting images of people living with HIV/AIDS in the 1980s, taken by Atlanta-area photographer Billy Howard, are the basis for this exhibit curated by Rose Library curator Randy Gue. The exhibit features 17 photographs, each showing a person with HIV/AIDS—or their loved one—and a handwritten message from that person about living with the disease. The photographs are stark and yet moving, and the messages reveal hope and resilience. The exhibit includes some of the photo subjects’ letters to Howard, as well as audio clips, accessible from the Woodruff Library exhibitions webpage with a mobile phone, which discusses stories behind some of the photographs.
