Presented by Musarium, Looking for the Light is a collection of five photo essays by photographer Scott Thode, documenting his observations and interactions with people living with HIV and AIDS. Spanning a fifteen-year period, the stories "reflect the changing attitudes, fears and knowledge about the AIDS crisis." Stories include The Spirit Within, which looks at how people with AIDS deal with the disease on a spiritual level, and Ray of Hope, the story of a father and son both of whom are infected with the virus. Also included is an AIDS Timeline, a Wall of Names where visitors can share their thoughts about specific people in the essays, and a forum for more general comments. A shorter version of Living with the Light with a lengthier Timeline and additional AIDS epidemic history is presented simultaneously on the New York Times Website (free registration required).
