How We Cope
MetadataShow full item record
How We Cope is an exploration of the number of ways in which people, specifically young adults, cope with loss due to cancer. Cancer is a disease that, statistically, will affect every human at some point in their lives whether it be diagnosis or the diagnosis of someone close. This portrait project sought to capture the emotion of those who have lost someone close to them following a conversation about the deceased. With research from the National Cancer Institute on the processes of grief and coping, these conversations add emotional context to the varied and circumstantial ways in which people move forward with life after loss. This series aims to provide a compassionate look at these stories while also sharing them via a web platform built for the project.
