Photojournalist Known for Documenting the AIDS Crisis in Africa

Kristen Ashburn's poignant photographs give a human face to struggles that much of the world knows only as statistics and blurbs on the news. She has photographed the people of Iraq a year after the U.S. invasion, Jewish settlers in Gaza, suicide bombers, the penal system in Russia, victims of tuberculosis and the aftermath of the tsunami in Sri Lanka and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. One of her more works, BLOODLINE: AIDS and Family, looked at the human impact of AIDS in Africa.
