Photo Stories: African Women and Kids
Affected by AIDS Share their Lives

Men of the family
Inocencia lives with her older brother Cristo, who holds a photograph of his father. "I took this photo of my brother handling the photograph of my father to show the contact, the tenderness between father and son." Both their father and mother died of AIDS. The children live at home without parents and rent out the back of the house.

comments from website visitors:

I love this image! In addition to representing two generations of dignified men, it also reveals the way in which photography can help us remember, immortalize and mesh different periods of time together. You portraits are very powerful; I hope you will continue to make images!
