In Every 17 Seconds, Brian Weil has produced a sensitive, informed, and global work in response to the AIDS crisis. With abstract yet pressing reality, Weil's work transcends the specifics of the epidemic itself and resonates with the timeless weight of those confronting obstacles to their mind, body, and spirit and struggling to live in spite of them.

According to the World Health Organization, someone in the world gets infected with HIV every 17 seconds. Over the past seven years, photographer and AIDS activist Weil traveled to England, New York, Thailand, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Zimbabwe, and South Africa to photograph people involved in the war against AIDS--people with HIV, activists, health care workers, family, and friends. His compassionate photographs (extremely grainy with high contrast), gathered here in this handsome, informed volume, are currently touring the country under the auspices of Photographers + Friends Against AIDS. Weil's poignant pictorial narrative is complemented by British writer/critic Watney's forceful introductory essay. Recommended for all photography and AIDS collections.
