Cancer Connections - A Remarkable Online Photo Exhibition
Pietropaolo V. In the face of cancer. CMAJ. 2009 Mar 17;180(6):645-6. PMID: 19289813
Photosensitive, a collective of photographers using photography as a vehicle for social change, and the Canadian Cancer Society cosponsored this online gallery and traveling exhibition of more than 400 photographs (and growing) of people with cancer.
From the review by Vincenzo Pietropaolo:
“The photographs are mostly portraits of people who look just like you and me, except that that they have physical and/or psychological scars from the experience of having lived with, through and in spite of myriad forms of cancer. The people portrayed are patients, survivors, health care workers, friends — in short, what can be loosely called the “cancer community.” A short and often poignant descriptive caption, usually identifying the subjects, accompanies each picture."
