Using Photography and Video to Tell Stories that Need to Be Told

This morning I came across a short film that I just had to share with the dPS community. It is the story of Jill Brzezinski-Conley who shares her story of life, love and the challenges thrown her way through breast cancer.

Nothing I can really say adequately expresses what this video presents so… please watch and consider sharing this video.

‘The Light That Shines’ a story for all from InBedWithSue.com on Vimeo.

I guess to bring it back to what we do here at dPS – this is a beautiful example of one photographer (Sue Bryce) and one videographer Hailey Bartholomew using their gifts and talents so positively to impact the life of another person and to tell a story that I suspect will touch and hopefully inspire many.

Read more at Hailey’s blog and on Sue’s site and connect with Jill here on Facebook.

    Thank you Darren for sharing this. I have been following Jill’s story since it unfolded on CL and it touches me on many different levels. That is the story i should have made about my little sister :( One of the most relevant uses of our cameras, ever…

    Storytelling in whatever medium is to serve as a conduit for emotion. The beauty and courage conveyed in this piece is testimony to skills sets and desire. Thanks for sharing and congratulations to cast and crew. If success is measured by having made someone(s) better for their contact with you…all involved should be proud. Keep fighting ladies.

    Beautifully told, beautifully photographed and a beautiful person as the subject. A story that should be broadcast far and wide to inspire women. I am moved to tears by her bravery. And accolades to Bart for being a “mench” !
