This body of work represents the first chapter of Forgotten Faces of AIDS, which began with frequent visits to orphanages in New Delhi. Prepared to see frail, sickly, emaciated infants and children, I was pleasantly surprised to find relatively healthy, active, happy youngsters at both the Naz Foundation (India) and CHELSEA facilities, where HIV is considered a chronic, treatable disease rather than a death sentence. As I spent time observing and playing with the youngsters, I realized that although they are AIDS orphans and most of them HIV+, they are the fortunate ones: There are over 2 million AIDS orphans living in the rural villages or wandering the urban streets of India. As many as 200,000 are HIV+ and very few are receiving adequate nutrition, proper medications and loving care. Worldwide, children are the most vulnerable to HIV and these images of AIDS orphans serve as a vivid reminder that hope and support for these youngsters is urgently needed so that India will not have to lose an entire generation before the world takes notice.
