AIDS in India | Photojournalist: Leah Nash

AIDS in India | Photojournalist: Leah Nash | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"In India, where sex is taboo and AIDS/HIV carries a heavy stigma, infection rates have grown to epidemic proportions. Major forms of transmission include blood transfusions, men who have sex with men, and intravenous drug users. However, by far, the highest infection rates are due to heterosexual sex.

Second only to Africa, the numbers were predicted to reach 10 million by 2010. Yet, it is still an issue that most of India is not talking about and that most of the world does not know.This story was made possible by a Fulbright Grant." - Leah Nash

Kawah Ijen - Sulfur miners of Ijen crater | Photojournalist: Mitchell Kanashkevich

Kawah Ijen - Sulfur miners of Ijen crater | Photojournalist: Mitchell Kanashkevich | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Kawah Ijen is Java's famous sulfur-belching volcanic crater. It is also the regular workplace for almost three hundred men, who make the grueling journey up the mountain and down the crater rim to mine sulfur.

The men depend on nothing more than a metal rod and sheer muscle power. They have no special equipment to assist them with the mining and little to no protection from the poisonous fumes that the volcano constantly expels. The job of the men at Kawah Ijen might be one of the most difficult and dangerous in the world.

The chechen refugees | Photographer: Gianni Giosue

The chechen refugees | Photographer: Gianni Giosue | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

My project wants to document the daily lives of the Chechen refugees living in the Pankisi Valley, Republic of Georgia. They came to Georgia about 12 years ago following the wars that ravaged the Republic of Chechnya in 1994-96 and 1999-2000. 

Ever since they have been trying to relocate to a third country or to start a new life. Some of them managed to be relocated to Northern America or to some European states. 

Some others stayed behind and were left in a legal limbo. It takes about 10 years to be able to qualify for Georgian citizenship. Some of them still have no documents: as a consequence it is difficult to be integrated, find a job and live a normal life.- Gianni Giosue
