Annabel Clark
“My photographs and her journal entries tell a parallel story of an illness that I now look back on as something we were lucky to go through. While they highlight upsetting moments of vulnerability and hopelessness, they also show her incredible will to overcome this disease with both strength and grace. My mother's will to live has been empowering for me and, I hope, will be for other women and their families who are battling cancer. This experience has shown me who my mother really is, and it has brought us together in ways I never could have imagined. This is our journal.”
—Annabel Clark, June 2004

Late in 2002 British actress Lynn Redgrave learned that she had breast cancer. After sharing the news with her family she made the decision to undergo surgery, followed by a months-long regimen of chemotherapy and radiation. Together with her daughter Annabel Clark, she was determined to record the experience, creating a compelling document of treatment and recovery with an unprecedented level of intimacy. With heart-rending honesty, in bittersweet moments as beautiful as they are difficult, the photographs and journal take viewers through a personal journey through the leading cancer diagnosed in women today, and provides further insight into the disease: where we were twenty years ago in awareness, where we are now, and how far we still have to go.
