I am lucky enough to have a project with The American Cancer Society. I will travel to the four "Hope Lodges" in the upper midwest (Minneapolis, Rochester, Iowa City and Marshfield, WI) to photograph those who benefit from their services. Because many travel from great distances to access hospitals, Hope Lodges are places where patients and their families can stay when they are receiving treatment. Tomorrow morning I am traveling to Hope Lodge in Iowa City.
Erik, a 24 year old, recently stayed with his mother at Hope Lodge in Minneapolis.
Work like this surely helps me keep things in perspective. My problems are miniscule in comparison.
