Processing brings photography to situations of great challenge.
I have worked with people during illness, at end of life and other moments of joyful
or difficult transitions along the way.
Photography can be a valuable tool for imprinting experience and offering a tangible means
of accessing these moments. This was the premise put to work notably at Commonweal,
which grew into a series entitled Wall Becomes a Window, shown during Reimagine.
Photography has also helped me celebrate and elevate people as they face difficulties.
Deborah Cohan and I used this starting point to document her journey through cancer.
Finally, images can (re)unite, bringing families together at end of life and giving loved ones
visual comfort years beyond that. Portraits are always possible, yet perhaps most precious
are the candid images of families simply being together.
