Fight Aids Monaco is a Monaco organisation, founded in 2004 by H.S.H. Princess Stephanie.

The vocation of this association is to accompany anyone living with HIV, who suffers from isolation, lack of trust and too often discrimination. They organize all-public information sessions and intervene in schools and universities.

Fight Aids carries out also communication and prevention campaigns on HIV.

Pursuing that spirit, in 2010, H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie created La Maison de Vie (Life House) in Carpentras, which is financed by Fight Aids Monaco.

A unique concept in Europe, it is a non-medical facility that offers people living with HIV one to two weeks of individual accommodation to rest, take time for themselves and regain self-confidence.

Jordan Matter is a portrait and dance photographer, author of the New York Times bestsellers Dancers Among Us and Born To Dance.

His work has created a viral phenomenon attracting over three million followers on social media and the videos of his Youtube series, 10 minute photo challenge have been viewed over 200 million times.

He has presented his work to a wide variety of organisations such as ESPN, the National Arts Club or the School of Visual Arts. Him and his work have been featured on ABC World News, Nightline, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Today, the BBC and in the New York Times, the Huffington Post, O, The Oprah Magazine and newspapers, magazines and exhibitions all over the world.

WHAT IS THE 10 MINUTE PHOTO CHALLENGE?

The idea is to capture the maximum photographies in only 10 minutes of fearless dancers, athletes or circus performers in any insolite places without any previous planning. With his contagious energy Jordan Matter manages to capture the beauty of these amazing moments while letting serendipity unfold throughout the challenge.
