||Nudes On Hand Brushed Paper
The photographs in this series are printed on French watercolor
paper on which the photographer has hand brushed a black and white
photographic emulsion. Hence the very apparent visible brush strokes.
They have been printed in various sizes. The largest are 22" x 28" and
are limited to an addition of 20.
||Orphaned African Children with HIV/AIDS
There are currently more than 12 million children orphaned by AIDS
in Africa. Many of these innocent victims themselves have HIV/AIDS.
The lucky ones are fortunate to end up in caring orphanages such as
Nyumbani. In 2000 I went to Kenya and stayed at the Nyumbani orphanage
for two weeks and photographed many of the kids ranging: from infants to
teenagers. All were HIV positive. Many were seemingly healthy and active
and others not so well off. But all were lovingly cared for. These are
some of the images from that project.
||Look At Me! I Want My Fifteen Minutes
This series of photographs is a visual metaphor illustrating
people's obsession with the often misguided sense of their own
celebrity. Warhol assigned us each 15 minutes and the mass
of us seem driven to go to any extreme to put ourselves on public
display, sometimes without benefit of clothing and frequently
with subsequent embarrassment, in order to collect our quarter hour.
||Women Living With HIV/AIDS
Art Myers's project of women living with HIV/AIDS has been exhibited in

and in many libraries.
