Nancy Borowick: Cancer Family
New York photographer, Nancy Borowick’s bio states that she is a humanitarian photographer. She certainly has that right, but she is also a powerful storyteller, sharing work that is intimate, personal, and profound. In additional to personal work, she documents stores about our time, our environment, and our politics. Her site is worth exploring for insights large and small into the American psyche. Today I am sharing Nancy’s work about her family’s fight against cancer that is heartbreakingly personal, but also a tribute and testament to love and life.
Nancy is a graduate of the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism program at the International Center of Photography and holds a degree in Anthropology from Union College. Over the last ten years she has narrowed the focus her work, telling stories of illness and personal relationships, using compassion, humility and trust as tools to connect and explore deeper into the lives of her subjects. Nancy is a regular contributor to Newsday, amNY, and Demotix/Corbis and her work has also been featured on CNN, Time.com, Washington Post, Edible Manhattan and SF Gate, of the San Francisco Chronicle.
