Nancy Borowick: The Family Imprint

A Daughter's Portrait of Love and Loss

Edited with text by Nancy Borowick. Introduction by James Estrin.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Nancy Borowick: The Family Imprint.'When American photojournalist Nancy Borowick’s (born 1985) parents Howie and Laurel were diagnosed with stage-four cancer and underwent simultaneous treatment, she did the only thing she knew how to do: she documented it. By turning the camera on her family’s life during this most intimate time, Borowick learned a great deal about herself, family and relationships in general. Borowick's father died in 2013, and her mother followed 364 days later. The lessons she garnered from Howie and Laurel were plentiful: always call when the airplane lands, never pass on blueberry pie, and most importantly, family is love and love is family.

“Though it is nothing she would have wished for, in a relatively short time Nancy Borowick became an expert in photographing death.” —The New York Times

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

CNN

Elizabeth Johnson

"The Family Imprint," the book based on Nancy Borowick's photography essay "Cancer Family Ongoing," is one of the most poignant personal stories I've seen. Borowick's personal moments with her family tell a story of hope, love of family and heartbreaking loss. It's clear that she photographed in part to deal with the pain of her reality, and that level of intimacy allows viewers to deal with their own painful realities through her experiences. Yet, her personal optimism is seen through humorous and touching moments. I've cried alongside countless others who see these pictures; I've smiled looking through these pictures. The depth of these images make them instantly relatable, regardless of personal experiences.

Nancy Borowick bravely documents this deeply personal story of her parents’ passion for life in the face of death. As both are diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, Nancy captures times of joy with family and friends and her parents’ love for each other through to the end of their lives. This fearless portrayal serves to remind us that each breath is a gift and begs that we all remember to live our lives to the fullest.

An epic, sweeping tale: Nancy Borowick: The Family Imprint'

An epic, sweeping tale: Nancy Borowick: The Family Imprint'

"The power of Nancy Borowick's seminal work on her family's struggle with cancer is that it is not about cancer. It is about the tender and passionate love story of her parents, both of whom happened to have had stage-four malignancies at the same time. It is an epic, sweeping tale that explores the journey of a family embracing life in the face of death… Nancy's work is neither quiet nor polite. It shouts at us to seize every moment in which we are alive." – James Estrin continue to blog

A Daughter's Portrait of Love and Loss: Nancy Borowick's 'Family Imprint'

A Daughter's Portrait of Love and Loss: Nancy Borowick's 'Family Imprint'

CNN, TIME, The New York Times NPR's All Things Considered, and today, CBS Sunday Morning are just a few of the media outlets that have covered Nancy Borowick's deeply affecting documentary book project, The Family Imprint: A Daughter's Portrait of Love and Loss. Through her own photographs, family albums, Post-it notes, love letters and short texts by her parents, Borowick presents the story of her parents' lifelong love for one another, and their untimely deaths—one year apart of stage four pancreatic and breast cancer. A book like this stands a 99 percent chance of being sentimental, cloying or even opportunistic. Borowick is that rare artist who makes it work in no uncertain terms. The highest quality materials and printing, spot-on photo and text editing and an instinct for storytelling that is both universal and personal, almost archetypal, make this a book you almost can't help reading from cover to cover in one sitting. It's completely honest. Highly recommended. continue to blog
