Tribute to the AIDS day by x-horizon Tribute to the AIDS day by x-horizon
...because faith is in your own hands!

Thank you all for supporting this day. Also thank you all for supporting me. I know I haven't been a very active deviant lately...

Captured with my brandnew D80 - still test shooting though.

Very original and beautiful!!!!!!!! I'm with the other people, it does look like the blood is in that ribbon formation thing that is for supporting breast cancer or something.... Did you do that on purpose?

this is really a nice idea. there are competitions in most of the countries' medical schools for world aids day posters (ifmsa-scora and unfpa) if you show this pic to them, i believe this photo will be popular worldwide :)

I liked the way I saw the hand at first, then went to blood and then suddenly realized it's ribbon-shaped. great, great.

this is a very powerful image and it brings up a lot of memories for me. i do a lot of theatre and last year i played a character with aids. it was very difficult and impacted my life for the duration of the production. it's a very serious pandemic and all the support popping up is amazing.

congratulations on a wonderful piece.
