Jennifer Willis - 'Seen to be Heard'
Award winning Belfast photographer Jennifer Willis shares the story behind her series of powerful, yet dignified, portraits of women living with a secondary breast cancer diagnosis. 'Seen to be Heard' reveals the physical and emotional cost of the disease and the project has become a platform to effect change in the provision of cancer care in Northern Ireland. NBCRC were pleased to welcome Jennifer and also Cheryl and Valerie to Nottingham.
Diane Leopard - 'Letting Photographs Tell Their Stories'
Diane is a clinical complementary therapist living in Stoke-on-Trent. Before her own diagnosis Diane provided therapies for cancer patients and in her own words "foolishly thought she had a good understanding of the disease". However, nothing had prepared her for the devastating impact of her own diagnosis. 'Letting Photographs Tell Their Stories' is a series of non-clinical photographs which describes the emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis. Diane regularly presents the collection as an illustrated talk to group meetings including cancer support groups, hospices, WI and workplaces.
