Carlo's Journey

8 images Created 6 Oct 2016

1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. 

Carlo, a dear and long standing friend, suggested that I document his journey, in the hope that it might help others manage the reality of living with prostate cancer.   

Without my camera, I don't think that I would have been able to handle the maelstrom of emotions that engulfed me.

In this gallery are a selection of images from a photoessay of 60 photographs, which will form a book through which I hope to share the emotional and physical changes Carlo went through: The sense of weakness, of inevitability, of loss of self; the anxiety of being tethered to never ending treatments, of never being well again, of impotence; and ultimately of hope.
