About this picture

Description

The man embraced by his family was David Kirby. "The photo of David Kirby in his room in the Ohio State University Hospital in May 1990, with his family at his bedside, was taken by Therese Frare ... and was printed as a black and white press photo in Life magazine in November 1990. It ... won the 1991 World Press Photo Award ... it was Benetton's use of it in its advertising that brought it to the attention of the world media and made people talk about dying of AIDS."--www.press.benettongroup.com
