13 Dec 2005-10 Jan 2006. Sixty photographs by David Chancellor examine the lives of HIV-positive people on anti-retroviral treatment and the communities in which they live. They are the result of two months spent in communities affected by the virus, working closely with staff, volunteers and clients of the South Africa Red Cross Society's Community Home Based Care Programme. By the end of 2003, an estimated 5.3 million adults and children in South Africa, or just over one fifth of the countrys population, were thought to be living with HIV, which leads to AIDS, according to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS UNAIDS. Portraits of Positive Living is showing in the Castle of Good Hope, a restored fortress built after 1665 by the Dutch East India Company and Cape Town's oldest building. Daily 09.30-16.00.
