My name is
Karyn Schafer and I am seeking work as a photojournalist and currently
working on a photographic book to conclude this current project.
I spent 2 months documenting the AIDS epidemic in parts of South Africa.
I met incredible people working for organizations like Treatment Action
Campaign and AIDS Consortium. The mission was to de-stigmatise the virus
in order to free the alienation of being diagnosed. I saw so much beauty
within the pain and struggle. A more optimistic approach resulted in the
conclusion that there is hope with this devastation.
