Affected by AIDS Share their Lives

View from the back of the house
Children and turkeys scavenge a massive dump located directly behind the home of Irenio and Saquina. "This photo shows the rubbish dump which is next to my house," Irenio says. "There are some boys there, and some turkeys are feeding."

comments from website visitors:

This picture, like the other picture of the dump is great. First, it gives me an idea of the life, the place, the activities. The formal relationship in size between the turkey's and the children is very interesting compostion. I also like the color and atmosphere... altogether a riveting picture.

When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
