    In this clip, Mark Lubell, the Bureau Chief for Magnum Photos New York, introduces the scope of the Access to Life project. He presents a slide show featuring several artists from the project revealing how they each personally engaged with the subject of documenting AIDS victims and the treatment provided to them all over the world. You can watch the entire panel discussion divided in four different clips on our multimedia page and vimeo account. Coinciding with the release of the book Access to Life (Aperture, Magnum Photos and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, 2009), Aperture and The New School presented a compelling panel discussion with artists and photojournalists Gilles Peress and Kristen Ashburn; former picture editor of Time magazine MaryAnne Golon; and moderator Fred Ritchin, Associate Chair of the Department of Photography and Imaging at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and Director of PixelPress. This event is part of the series Confounding Expectations: Photography in Context presented in collaboration with Vera List Center for Art and Politics and Parsons the New School for Design. For the past 25 years, the AIDS pandemic has inflicted excruciating pain upon humanity, having ravaged the lives of millions of people around the world. Over the past few years, however, a quiet global revolution has enabled millions infected by HIV to live healthy lives through the free antiretroviral treatment program initiated by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In Access to Life, eight of the world’s leading photojournalists, all members of Magnum Photos, follow thirty individuals in nine countries before, and four months after, they began the antiretroviral treatment, documenting the transformative effect on their bodies, their lives, and the lives of their families. This dream team of photographers was assigned to the following countries: Jonas Bendiksen (Haiti), Jim Goldberg (India), Alex Majoli (Russia), Steve McCurry (Vietnam), Paolo Pellegrin (Mali), Gilles Peress (Rwanda), Eli Reed (Peru), and Larry Towell (South Africa and Swaziland). These powerful images reveal the patients’ complex struggle against the disease with great subtlety and hope.

      The panel discussion continues with some questions from the audience. Topics discussed include where the initial funding for taking on a project of this manner originates, how the experience of photographing this subject matter personally affects the subject, its environment, and the photographer. The main topic of the discussion is how important funding is for this kind of work- without being able to raise the necessary costs, projects like these would not exist. The discussion continues on the Global Fund organization specifically, its functioning and reach out before Mark Lubell makes conclusive remarks.
