f³ will be opened with Nancy Borowick’s long term documentation A Life In Death on the experiences of her parents affected by cancer. Borowick accompanied them over the course of several years with the camera. With great respect, she shows us her parents’ experiences while both undergo cancer treatment – their shifting dynamics and the daily banter of a couple that shares infinitely more than this challenge. Pictures of a family and their everyday life, characterized by love and loss.
Nancy Borowick’s work reflects a situation that many of us have experienced as patients, partners, in the family and our in circle of friends. Despite their intimacy, Borowick’s images are never voyeuristic or baring. Rather it is the great peace and strength in them, that raises the questions of how to deal with illness and death in our society.
The series was awarded the World Press Photo Award in the category Long-Term Project in 2016.
