Cancer Connections Photo Exhibit

April 20, 2010 Leave a comment

So this morning, I headed downtown to check out the Cancer Connection Vancouver photo exhibit hosted by the Canadian Cancer Society and PhotoSensitive. It’s hard to really describe the power and raw emotion that is conveyed through the simple black and white photos and stories that they tell. These photos are, as much as people may overuse the term, tear jerking and I admit that I had tears welling up in my eyes as I walked through the exhibit. They tell of stories of triumph, strength, and most importantly hope. Even with those who have sadly lost in their battles with cancer, they never gave up hope and fought right down to the end. The weather seemed to agree, with rain droplets falling on the photos, adding tears of both joy and sorrow to the photos. Enough with the words, I don’t know how else to describe it or what else to say other than that it’s here until May 3, and you should definitely head down and check it out.
