Documenting personal stories are as much about the photographer as they are about the subject. Nancy Borowick never planned to photograph her family, but when she found herself in the chemotherapy room with both of her parents who had been diagnosed with stage-4 cancers, she found that photography allowed her to process, heal and understand what was happening through a familiar context and in a language she could understand. The story she was living, and photographing, was not about cancer and death she realized, it was about life, love and family in contrast.
Nancy will share her intimate story, breaking down her journey and detailing her experiences as she wore the hats as both a daughter and a photographer, navigating
through the struggles and the successes when turning the lens on your own life. She will reflect on her path from beginning to end, sharing her private and vulnerable journal of her family on world-wide stage, and the personal and professional lessons she learned along the way.
