Justice Refocused: Photographer names his “family of choice” to inherit his art

A senior client came to the AIDS Law Project seeking assistance in executing a will and medical power of attorney. Estranged from his immediate family, he struggled with who he would name on his documents.

He will be leaving behind a collection of his photographs, which are inspired by his life as a gay man and his personal experiences dealing with health crises. We encouraged him to consider naming individuals who appreciate his work and will respect his medical wishes. Ultimately, the client chose individuals who will honor his memory and treasure his art collection.
