Canada: Toronto Photo Show Documents Legacy of HIV/AIDS

July 22, 2008

"Living With," which opens today in downtown Toronto's Brookfield Place, documents the toll of AIDS in Rwanda, where some 200,000 among the population of 9 million are living with the disease. The exhibit is the product of six photojournalists and an intern who spent almost two years documenting conditions in the African nation. Rape and sexual violence were common weapons employed by the Hutu militia during Rwanda’s 1994 genocidal upheaval, greatly exacerbating the spread of HIV. The showing is a joint project of Carleton University's Rwanda Initiative and the Toronto-based social photography collective PhotoSensitive.
