Cancer is everywhere and we have all likely been touched by it. Many of us have our own personal stories. For me, cancer has been part of my family since the age of five, having lost both my parents, a grandmother, many uncles, aunts, nephews, cousins, friends and neighbours since then. Fortunately, great strides have been made in the battle against cancer during this last decade which has given many of us much hope.
This afternoon, I went to see 'Cancer Crossing' at the Blankstein Gallery in the Millennium Library in Winnipeg. This is a pre-launch exhibition for the e-book which is scheduled to be published in the near future. I look forward to seeing the e-book and hopefully a hard copy will also follow.
I was quite impressed with the large black & white photographs of those who shared their stories with us. The photographer(s) captured very personal moments and I found the images quite expressive. The stories are compelling and brought back a lot of memories of both pain and joy. I highly recommend this exhibition of fine black & white photographs which runs from March 1-31, 2014.
