Abstract: We give a new proof of the vanishing of $ H^{1}(X,V)$ for negative vector bundles $ V$ on normal projective varieties $ X$ satisfying rank $ V< \dim X$. Our proof is geometric, it uses a topological characterization of the affine bundles associated with nontrivial cocycles $ \alpha \in H^{1}(X,V)$ of negative vector bundles. Following the same circle of ideas, we use the analytic characteristics of affine bundles to obtain convexity properties of coverings of projective varieties. We suggest a weakened version of the Shafarevich conjecture: the universal covering $ \tilde X$ of a projective manifold $ X$ is holomorphically convex modulo the pre-image $ \rho ^{-1}(Z)$ of a subvariety $ Z \subset X$. We prove this conjecture for projective varieties $ X$ whose pullback map $ \rho ^{*}$ identifies a nontrivial extension of a negative vector bundle $ V$ by $ \mathcal{O}$ with the trivial extension.
