Cancer Family: The Photographs: Role Reversal

I was at the hospital with Dad because he needed yet another procedure. Camera on the windowsill, I watched as the nurse struggled to find a strong enough vein in Dad’s arm for an IV.My mind went blank and the next thing I knew I was being escorted into a nearby room and laid onto a bed. Did I faint? This made no sense as I had spent so many weeks in the hospitalwith my parents. This was the first time I wasn’t photographing the reality of what was happening in front of me.
