Excerpt: Access to Life: The Global Fund – Jim Goldberg

Access to Life

By Jim Goldberg

Supported by The Global Fund on the ground, eight Magnum photographers – Jonas Bendiksen, Jim Goldberg, Alex Majoli, Steve McCurry, Paolo Pellegrin, Gilles Peress, Eli Reed, and Larry Towell – embraced the responsibility to visualize the external aspects of the lives of individuals marked by AIDS and its afflictions. Jim Goldberg photographed HIV/AIDS patients in India. It wasn’t only the people suffering from the disease with whom the artists interacted, it also extended to their loved ones, their children and parents. In bringing them together for this book, Access to Life proposes that these citizens of nine separate countries are unified beyond borders in their collective struggle to forestall mortality and to participate in networks of compassion and solicitude.
