Live Hope Love is a beautiful online photo and poetry journal that captures the lives of those living with HIV in Jamaica. The multimedia project offers an interactive look into the lives of people Living and Loving with AIDS in Jamaica.

"HIV/AIDS is defined by people: their complex lives, their bravery, their fear, their sadness, their need, their laughter, their inconsistencies -- basically, their rich humanity," Live Hope Faith says.

Joshua Cogan did an astounding job capturing the emotions through his camera lens, and the 22 poems supplementing the imagery contain words to stir every soul, whether they've been directly affected by HIV or not.

The site, commissioned by the Pulitzer Center, also contains music to further enrich each poem, and the entire project is supplemented by a video.
