PhotoPhilanthropy has launched a series of conversations on their Instagram feed @photophilanthropy. Leading off the conversation will be Andri Tambunan, the grand prize winner of PhotoPhilanthropy’s 5th annual Activist Awards. Tambunan will be posting images from his series, Against All Odds: The HIV/AIDS Epidemic in Papua as well as posting new photos from Papua as he makes a follow-up journey to the small Indonesian province.
PhotoPhilanthropy explains, “Tambunan’s photos are a jumping off point to begin a larger online conversation about the global HIV/AIDS crisis. We will be hearing from NGOs, AIDS researchers, doctors, anthropologists and other experts in the field. These conversations will revolve around the themes that arise from Tambunan’s photographs: stigma, access to health care and medication, children with AIDS, prostitution, as well as stories of individuals overcoming their illnesses and living productive lives.”
Join the conversation by following @photophilanthropy on Instagram! Contribute your voice and photographs by using the hashtag #photo4change, and PhotoPhilanthropy will share selected photo submissions with the community. You can also get involved by sharing comments and stories on Facebook!
