Cancer Connections book set to launch in 11 cities across Canada

Book's launch will coincide with the Canadian Cancer Society's Daffodil Month.

It will be available for pre-order at cost.


Book will feature 1,000 images of people from across Canada

PhotoSensitive’s latest book, Cancer Connections: Images of Hope and Courage From Across Canada is due to launch on April 12, published by John Wiley and Sons.

In partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society, PhotoSensitive will be holding simultaneous launch parties on April 12 in every city visited by the travelling PhotoSensitive exhibition between May 2008 and June 2010. This national event will help to launch a book that is over three years in the making. 

The book contains 1,000 stunning black and white images, with 150 photos featured in large format alongside their captions. There are also 12 in-depth interviews with a variety of Cancer Connections subjects from across the country.

The book will launch in the gallery at First Canadian Place, Toronto at 6pm on the evening of April 12 and there will also be launch parties at the following cities:

  • Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Calgary, Alberta
  • Regina, Saskatchewan
  • Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • Ottawa, Ontario
  • Montreal, Quebec
  • Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • Saint John, New Brunswick
  • Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
  • St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador

We plan to have photographers and subjects from the show at each of the launch events. There will be speakers and also video from the Cancer Connections exhibition as it appeared in every city. Please email if you would like to get involved in the launch events.

The book will retail at $39.95 Canadian plus tax (a bargain for this quality of hardback pictorial book) BUT PhotoSensitive has a limited number of books that we can offer at cost - $25, no tax, plus shipping where applicable (no shipping will apply if you can pick the books up from the Toronto book launch or PhotoSensitive’s Mississauga office).
