Photo Gallery: LIFE by Zoë Law, The Lowry, Salford
Focusing on 21 people living with cancer, LIFE, an exhibition of portraits by photographer Zoë Law, seeks to raise awareness of the cancer support charity Maggie’s and highlight the support needed for people with cancer, their friends and family.
Curated by Ab Rogers Design, each photograph captures the subject’s joy for life and their resilience during and beyond cancer. The photographs were originally taken to mark Maggie’s 21st birthday in 2017 and the exhibition launched at Christie’s in London.
Zoë Law has been an avid supporter of Maggie’s for many years and with personal experiences of cancer within her own family it felt like a natural fit to work with Maggie’s on a photographic project which placed people living with cancer at its heart. Over the course of a year, Law invited people living with cancer to her London studio to take part in a photo shoot with their family and friends. All of the participants have been supported by Maggie’s across the UK through their different cancer experiences.
