DescriptionFinding a cure for cancer is not a luxury, but a necessity.All profits will be donated to cancer research.In 2007 my father was treated for malignant melanoma and my step-father was treated for malignant bladder tumours. I had benign polyps and tumours removed from my nose and sinuses.Early detection is not a joke. It is not a cure.Research is the only way.
Michelle Jephcott, Knoxville, Tennessee Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I first picked up a camera as a child in imitation of my dad who had a lovely old 35 mm Olympus. After playing with a series of 110 and 35 mm cameras, I moved into the digital age in 2001, getting an Olympus of my own.
I shoot with a combination of film and digital cameras, documenting the world around me as I see it - or maybe as I wish it to be seen. As a result, my work is a rather heterogeneous collection of photographs encompassing everything from family portraits to long exposure waterfall studies and sweeping landscapes to flower macros.
