In 2015 my Russian girlfriend Paulina almost died from TB. During her 7 months in an obscure hospital in Moscow, she had to endure some very outdated treatments. Her doctors told her not to tell anyone. Surgeons even pressured her to cut out parts of her lung, while the antibiotics were clearly working. She completely recovered. Now she is using this life changing experience to fight stigma with art. Hard to imagine in the west, but TB is still widespread in Russia, and still a taboo... They have all the medicine and know-how to eradicate it, but lack the political will to accept help from the west, or to even admit there is a problem. I want to help TBpeople to raise awareness. So inspired by the art of Paulina I've made this portrait. Take the taboo out of TB!
