Artist Statement

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 studied Photography in 1998 in New York and moved to London in 2003 to study a foundation course in Media at the London College of Communication.

Project Statement

In 2005, 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.
