“A Mother’s Journey” is photo documentary taken by Renée C. Byer about a mother’s love for her cancer ridden 10 year old son. This series — taken over the course of a year — won a Pulitzer Prize in 2007. The photos and story are equal parts tragic and beautiful, traversing the mystery of death that encompasses our worst fears and yet our purest levels of humanity.
