Photographer Natasha Phillips will soon be showcasing her New York Street series at the newly established Black and Blue gallery.
In the meantime, she is looking for sponsorship to continue her process of documenting the faces of people living with HIV.
Phillips, a recent graduate from the Sydney College of the Arts created a book entitled +Portraits People Living With HIV for her Masters project.
Capturing the images and stories of men living with HIV, from both Sydney and New York, Phillips is now looking to extend the project.
She is currently looking for sponsorship to raise the $3000 needed to return to New York on a Student work and travel pilot scheme so that she can begin documenting the experiences of women living with HIV.
I feel very passionately about this subject, said Phillips.
It is a very relevant and current topic. The complacency and ignorance I met with during the project only helped to reaffirm my commitment.
Phillips exhibition runs April 23 – May 10 at the Black and Blue Gallery, 302/267-271 Cleveland St. Surry Hills. If you would like to sponsor her ongoing documentation of HIV phone 0405 162 518.
