Have you heard about I Am Because We Are, a powerful new work of photojournalism documenting the AIDS pandemic in southern Africa? This new collection by award-winning photographer Kristen Ashburn, a companion piece to Madonna's documentary film by the same title, takes an intimate look into the lives of seven of the 1 million Malawian children who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Make sure to catch the film on the Sundance channel until December 17.
You can pre-order I Am Because We Are this holiday season. All author proceeds will go directly to Raising Malawi, a non-profit dedicated to providing community-based assistance to Malawian children who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Projectors can take an exclusive sneak peek at the book (PDF) thanks to Powerhouse Books.
