Sensitive report on the disease and the complex everyday life of those affected by it

Jason Sangik Noh is a surgeon and specializes in cancer treatment. Parallel to his medical career, he has dealt intensely with photography. His book cannot be assigned to a specific category: it is a kind of picture notebook with sketches, photographs, and handwritten remarks. His scientific aspirations and human interest merge to come an impressive and touching document. As one of the diseases of modern civilization that is the most complex to treat, it challenged the author to create this Biography of Cancer. He has succeeded in examining the theme without pathos and analyzing in depth its many levels. He finds his own pictorial vocabulary for success and recovery, as well as for failure and desperation. This project gained a great deal of attention and was awarded this year’s award by the Ilwoo Foundation in Korea.
