Begun in 1997 and continued through 2000 this work focused on the impact of HIV-AIDS on a community of fishing villages in southern Malawi. At the time, there was essentially a missing generation due to the disease and many children were being raised by their grandmothers. These images were among the first to reveal the longitudinal degradation being wrought by HIV-AIDS in Africa. The photographs were exhibited at the World Bank in Washington DC then traveled to other venues; they were also the cover story for the US Agency For International Development's publication 'Front Lines' before being published elsewhere. Craig Cohen, who is now leading the Center for Strategic and International Studies, wrote an incredible -still to be published book- detailing life in the villages of Mpondas and how such a resilient community continued its daily life despite the plague of HIV-AIDS. Without Craig's writing, these photographs only begin to tell that story.
