Andri Tambunan, an American-raised photographer who lives in Jakarta, has been documenting the epidemic among the indigenous Papuans since 2009. The images in his project “Against All Odds” are a searing reminder that while in other parts of the world AIDS is increasingly becoming a manageable, chronic illness, it remains a ferociously deadly disease among the Papuans.
