Carolyn Jones's vivid and life-affirming portraits capture people from all backgrounds -- children and grandmothers, men and women of every race -- living with HIV and AIDS. She has collaborated with George DeSipio, Jr., and Michael Liberatore (co-founders of the project), and the 73 people who volunteered to pose for these photographs in an inspiring effort to change the way we think about AIDS. These captivating pictures illustrate the self-confidence and wisdom of ordinary people living life to the fullest. Design Industries Foundation for AIDS (DIFFA) is the sole recipient of the royalties from the sale of Living Proof.
"There is a light, a confidence, a calm, a dignity, a celebration of life that all these faces share. Thanks to Carolyn Jones for showing us the face of AIDS we are too afraid to see." - Susan Sarandon "The buoyancy...is magical, as if everyone concerned is embarking together on a journey that could transform the hard realities of so many lives." - Carol Squiers, American Photo "The face of courage is a face of beauty. Let us look, liger, and learn." - Lynn Redgrave "An inspiring, inspiriting book." - Susan Sontag "I am stunned by this collection of photographed humans and the revelation of their shared truth. I cheer; I grieve; and I seek an unknown word to express the magnitude of what I feel in my heart having experienced Living Proof." - Tommy Tune
