The Family Imprint
May 16—June 15, 2017
Opening Reception & US Book Launch: May 16, 6-9pm
When photojournalist Nancy Borowick’s parents, Howie and Laurel, were simultaneously diagnosed with stage-four cancer in 2012, she processed the ordeal in the way she knew best: photographing her parents’ next 24 months of treatment.
The Family Imprint is an intimate story of family, life and love. Borowick’s photographs comprise a love letter to her parents through an archive of memories. Her work celebrates the lives of Howie and Laurel while confronting their family’s heartbreaking loss.
An exhibition of select photographs and family mementos from The Family Imprint is on display on Anastasia Photo's lower level. The exhibition also celebrates the United States launch of Nancy's first monograph.
The artist will be available for interviews and tours by appointment. If interested, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
