Mary Fisher's Heroes
In June of 1997, Mary Fisher, a friend who I had known since she was an advance person in the Ford White House, asked me if I would mind accompanying her on the final leg of a project she had been working on for two years, to photograph AIDS caregivers across the country.
Mary, the mother of two boys, came forward and spoke before the nation during the 1992 Republican National Convention, to proclaim that she, who had come from one of the most priviledged families in the United States, had AIDS.
Mary is not a professional photographer or journalist. As I watched her take her pictures, in every case, she received as much love from her subjects as she tried to lavish on them.
Mary is truly a loving storyteller. It
is these stories that were published in December in her book "ANGELS IN
OUR MIDST" by Moyer Bell that THE DIGITAL JOURNALIST is proud to present.
