David J. Sencer CDC Museum unveils cancer survivors’ photo exhibit
Exhibit features photos and stories of CDC employees who have survived cancer
CDC cancer survivors are featured in the new exhibit, CANCER: Survivors in Focus, which highlights the public health impact of living with, through, and beyond cancer. The exhibit will be open June 17 through September 10, 2013. Several survivors will be available for pictures and interviews on Thursday, June 20.
The three-part photo exhibit offers a glimpse into the lives of cancer survivors through the work of photographers who examine cancer survivorship at CDC, in the United States and globally.
The exhibit includes photos from:
- Bryan Meltz, a documentary photographer based in Atlanta, captures moments from the lives of CDC employees who have survived cancer in Close to Home: CDC's Stories of Survivorship, a series commissioned just for this exhibit.
- John Kaplan's Not As I Pictured is an autobiographical account of the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist's unexpected cancer journey.
- Photographer and ovarian cancer survivor Carolyn Taylor presents Without Borders: The Global Face of Cancer, which portrays cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, and medical professionals in fourteen countries.
