Documentary photographer Leah Nash shares her poignant and extremely moving project following those with AIDS in India.
TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF?
I am an editorial and assignment photographer based in Portland, Oregon. For me photography has always been about the stories; the lives I get to inhabit, attempt to capture, and then share. I focus on finding real moments and getting to the trueness of my subjects. Daily photography both terrifies and invigorates me and the best assignments are the ones that teach me something new.
Much of my personal work looks at the definition of normal. Who is normal, how do we define and categorize it? What I’ve come to realise is that there is no normal. Whether you are a 5-year-old beauty queen, or a sex-worker, or someone with Asperger’s Syndrome that is fixated on the color green, that is your normal and the frame from which you view the world.
