Jason Taylor is a Delhi-based photojournalist. Sometime last year, he mailed me a CD of his most recent work, Driven, “an exhibition of photographs revealing the solitary and nomadic existence of North India’s truck driver population, the nature of their complex personal relationships, and their vulnerable position on the fringes of society, where the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections are becoming increasingly important issues.”
Driven is the culmination of a 5-month sojourn with the truck drivers and was supported by the Naz Foundation International.
Today is World AIDS Day. I felt it only timely and appropriate that Jason’s work finally gets published here on Tiffinbox. You can send Jason your comments and feedback directly by emailing him at nomad_is [at] hotmail [dot] com.
Mallika Dutta, Executive Director of Breakthrough.tv, emailed me a link about their campaign. Mallika, as a part of a panel this evening at the Rubin Museum of Art, will discuss AIDS in India, with particular focus given to the Himalayan region. The panel discussion begins at 7 pm and goes through 9 pm. There is a $10 fee.
