In addition to the Rarefied Light opening tonight, there will also be two full shows of Brian's work opening at the Huffman and Wasilla Kaladi locations. The show features portraits he's made of healthy, fit cancer survivors--some are active climbers, some are runners--who are doing all they can to keep on living and loving life after cancer. Cancer is behind these men and women--far behind--and they are determined to keep it from catching up.
Photographing for this project been an inspiring and humbling experience, to say the least. These survivors have had to believe in themselves and make a constant daily effort to push on, all while staring down the barrel of impossible failure. If only in this, this project was inspiring to me. And it was a humbling; these men and women know what it is to achieve something so great but keep pushing on, even after surviving. These people do not give up, do not let up. They are active, alive, and here. We can all learn from them.--Brian Adams
