Cancer: Survivors in Focus

June 17 - September 10, 2013

CANCER: Survivors in Focus—a three-part photography exhibition—offers a glimpse into the lives of people living with, through, and beyond a cancer diagnosis. An estimated 28 million people worldwide are living within five years of a cancer diagnosis.

This exhibition tells survivors' stories through the work of three photographers who examine cancer survivorship in different contexts: globally, in the United States, and at CDC.

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.

John Kaplan's Not As I Pictured is an autobiographical account of the Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist's unexpected cancer journey.

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 specifically for this exhibition.

Collectively, these photographs and the stories that inspired them highlight the experiences of cancer survivors around the world and provoke insights on how the public health community can help empower individuals to live longer, healthier lives after cancer.
