After 15 years of life as a New Yorker, I have returned to the west coast and am now based in Seattle, Washington. It was a bittersweet departure. I moved to New York at age 19 to study photography at Parsons School of Design and feel very lucky to have been able to build a career straight out of college doing what I love. New York is an inspiring place to live and work, but it was time for a change and I am excited for this next chapter. I look forward to discovering new places, new faces and new projects in 2016. Happy new year!
It has been 11 years since my book “Journal: A Mother and Daughter’s Recovery from Breast Cancer” was published. My photographs were paired with my mother’s written journal entries and together we chronicled every aspect of her experience with the disease. When the book was published, she was in remission and we both felt that the project had captured a complete story with a beginning, middle and an end. The end of the book signified the end of the disease. However, two years later the cancer reappeared in her bones and in 2010 she passed away. For awhile, I had a hard time looking at the photographs. I could no longer compartmentalize the disease into something that had come and gone. The message of hope in the book seemed to fade. But five years after my mother’s death, I look at the images again and I am reminded that this project was one of her proudest accomplishments. I think it gave her strength to continue living each day to the fullest and doing the things she loved despite the fact that the doctors could no longer offer the goal of remission. It is my hope that patients, survivors and caregivers will continue to find solace in this work.
