Nancy Borowick (b. 1985) is a humanitarian photographer and is currently based in New York City. She is a graduate of the Documentary Photography and Photojournalism program at the International Center of Photography and holds a degree in Anthropology from Union College. Over the previous ten years Nancy has narrowed the focus her work, telling stories of illness and personal relationships, using compassion, humility and trust as tools to connect with, and explore the lives of her subjects. Nancy’s most recent focus has been her parents’ battles with cancer. Nancy is a regular contributor to the New York Times, Newsday, amNY, and Corbis and her work has also been featured in the International Herald Tribune, Lens Blog, CNN, Time.com, Photo District News, the Washington Post, and Feature Shoot. She was recently named one of the 2013 Magenta Foundation Flash Forward Emerging Photographers and Borowick participated in the 2nd Annual New York Portfolio Review sponsored by the New York Times Lens Blog.
With compassion and respect, the photographer captures the full range of her parents' experience as they both endure cancer treatments simultaneously—from the daily banter they shared as husband and wife to their shifting dynamic as patient and caregiver.
