How do you find beauty and meaning in the most ordinary things when your life is being pulled away from you by the most extraordinary circumstances? On May 4, 2013, Cat Gwynn found a sizable lump in her right breast. Ten days later the acclaimed photographer was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer - a disease long feared.

Her artwork is collected and exhibited in international galleries and museums including the Lishui Museum of Photogr...
