A new photography series, Innovation & Inequality, supported by the United Nations Development Programme, shines a light on the importance of new health innovations – like vaccines, medicines & diagnostics – and getting them to the people around the world who need them most. My photo contribution to the series explores TB and one man’s losing struggle with the disease. (caption: Pak Agus has TB. His doctor has advised him to go to a specialized clinic to receive treatment, but Agus cannot afford the cost of travel and in-patient care for months on end.) Indonesia has one of the world’s worst TB epidemics – two thirds of people living with TB don’t get the care they need. Making matters worse, multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB – a deadly form of TB for which the standard drug regimen is futile – is a growing health crisis in Indonesia and around the world. Treating MDR-TB requires months – or even years – of daily injections and drugs, causes devastating side effects and costs many times more than treating TB with first-line drugs. This new series also covers other countries and their health issues. Check out the full series! bit.ly/2zIddV3

The Human Right's Watch report on shacking in Indonesia was released in Jakarta on March 21. The video, shot by my fixer, cameraman Goen Guy Gunawan, and accompanied by my photographs was picked up and reedited by AJ+ (Al Jazeera Media Network) now viewed by 1,090,990. After following this story for five years I am without words to describe this experience. Pasung was outlawed in 1977. What I do know is that the men and women I photograph are waiting and it is time.
CNN's Kathy Quiano, based in Indonesia, filed a second report (video) that includes two of my most recent photographs taken March 18 and 19 as well as others taken from 2011-2016

From a rough phone ap translation from the original french text: Result of seven years of investigation, "Urban Cave" plunges the reader into the lives of Chuck, Lisa or Geo, all residing in the New York pavement. Railway tunnels, in disused buildings, on the banks of the Hudson River, they found refuge in these caves and urban living, some for over twenty years. The camps arise between shadow and light into the lens of the photographer. Feeding, bathing, earning a few dollars by collecting cans, sometimes through prostitution, but also loving and protecting against attacks ... Andrea Star Reese makes, through her images and the many testimonies homeless dignity to these invisible citizens. • O.T. "Urban Cave" Andrea Star Reese,
BREAKING NEWS_Andrea Star Reese launches camptain in partnership with FotoEvidence to publish her seven year project 'The Urban Cave' edited by Alison Morley. More info, click here.
The Urban Cave is a story about the resilience and humanity of people who live unsheltered on the other side of conventional society. It is about a group of individuals and the full spectrum of their lives, rather than just their deprivations. The images are in response to the beauty of a place, a people, and the dignity, determination, and perseverance reflected in their culture.
The train tunnel has been evacuated, the Batcave has been sealed off and the people dispersed but The Urban Cave photo book will preserve the story of these displaced people, the unusual beauty of the home they made and the strength and determination with which they lived.
By backing The Urban Cave you will help to document this unique and recently dispersed community that survived for more then two decades under the streets of Harlem.
