In commemoration of World AIDS Day and Day With(out) Art on December 1, 1996, we put out a call for photographs and stories by and about people living with HIV/AIDS, who have died of AIDS, or who are caretakers of people with HIV/AIDS. It is now 2001 and the AIDS crisis continues.

We hope you will contribute your stories, memorials, and photographs. Email your images and writings or just email your thoughts. All contributions will be considered, but we cannot guarantee that all submissions will be accepted.

Submissions for Positive Visions will be posted as we receive them.

This is a growing collection. Please visit again, and if you haven't already, be sure to visit our collaborative project with Hetrick-Martin Institute, Positive Visions 97.

We also invite you to view the Collected Visions Gallery and the Collected Visions Museum of essays exploring the power of family photographs. Contributors have not only written about their own photographs, but have used others' photographs from our archive that trigger their memories. We encourage you to search our archive and create an essay and submit it for future exhibitions.
