Aids awareness 2007


Yesterday (December 1st), like each year, was the Aids awareness day. By sheer coincidence I happened to pass by the Pont des Arts where the Sidaction team (a French NGO) was doing a human chain to attract people's awareness. They also had a bunch of drummers. The whole thing was pretty impressive and even a little festive, even though the disease is not... Of course, I took several photos (see more in the making of - and here) and even a little video. Also, if you're not too prude, here is the Aids awareness campaign.

  1. Love the awareness, hate the disease. Drumming video with the people chain is cool!

  2. Wow Eric, that ad campaign is quite eerie. I can imagine that it could be considered quite controversial.

  3. I love the video, very moving... For more work on the publicist Dimitri Daniloff on the subject, just have a look at:

  5. I like this photo, and the cause is so important that I like it more than ever.
    About the link: This Aids awareness campaign is awful but obviously, necessary. Too much people are not know about the disease or in any case, not enough.
    Look at this one, a little bit ...lighter!
