Together – Heart Warrior

Together is a photography project in collaboration with my 6 year old heart warrior, Kane. Throughout Kane’s life I have photographed his medical journey and written from my perspective, but as he has gotten older I have felt it is not just my story to tell. Together is a diptych project involving both my perspective and Kane’s perspective.
