The grip of HIV and tuberculosis in South Africa: Portraits of survivors and those who are gone

Three years ago, photographer Misha Friedman traveled to South Africa. He went to Gugulethu, a township near Cape Town, to photograph several women living with HIV and tuberculosis. This year, he went back to try and find the women again. Some have since died. Friedman has now produced a new portrait series — focusing in part on those who were left behind and on the ongoing HIV crisis in South Africa — a country with the highest infection rate in the world.
