Exhibit Title: 'ROUGH LIVING'

Location: Rwenzorie Mountain Kingdom, Uganda

Caption: A tiny 6 month old baby is held lovingly by Muzamiru, one of the younger members of the Dustbin tribe. They reside in Kasese, a remote Western equatorial town of Uganda close to the Congolese border, a region of conflict. The baby's mother is a sex worker, but predictably, like many women in her profession, has acquired the HIV/AIDS virus, is dying from the disease and can no longer care for her child. The 'tribe' has adopted him. Muzamiru is 10 years old, a runaway because his father violently abused the family with knives and beatings. He ran away from the cruelty and has been a member of the tribe since he was 5.
