30 years/30 lives

Photo taken in Cape Town from 
30 years/30 lives collection
On 14 January 2013, CHATT started the new year with a stimulating meeting with Kimberly Vrudny, an associate professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas, in Minnesota.

Kim led a piece of work called 30 years/30 lives She documented the lives of 30 people affected by HIV through photography. The majority of people involved in the project were from Cape Town.

As CHATT members, it was so interesting to learn about Kim's experience of capturing the structural drivers of HIV through individual stories, including issues around ethics in photography.

Kimberly has donated the rights to print the photographs to the Cathedral and is open to exploring how we can use the photographs to reach Cathedral members and the broader Cape Town community with stories about the lives of people affected by HIV.
