“We are very excited about this project,” says Kimberly Lennox, the photographer and owner of Lennox Studios. “As an artist, I am not of much use behind a microscope, but with our camera and brushes we have found a way to make a difference.” That sentiment is echoed by Gary L. Minix, who assisted in the several hours of body painting required to create Human Heart “Each one of us involved in the project has been impacted by AIDS. I’m only 44 and I’ve gone to too many friend’s funerals.”
