Cancer, depression, or any sort of ailment can make you feel terribly isolated. As part of a series called Shining Light on Cancer, health photographer David Schlaich captures light paintings to illustrate the feelings of cancer patients. The series is for a book of light art images to help raise money for cancer charities.
“It can feel isolating to feel like no one knows how you feel. But when you go to a cancer support group and some groups you may find fit you better than others, you can find a community of people that can relate and a friend who knows how you feel. Of course this can apply to all kinds of problems, depression, addiction there’s lots of people out there who know how you feel. You don’t have to be alone if you find them”.
