    in 1997 my daughter was diagnosed with cancer. At the time they found it it had done serious damage to her spinal column and rib cage. She has undergone treatments for some time now and is trying to live life as best she can.

    Her dream is to become a photographer, and she is slowly doing so. She wants to learn the craft, and and then use it to bring awareness to cancer issues.

    Check out her work so far at Zoester Images

    We will be updating it soon as a lot has changed since we created it a year ago.

    "Your own photography is never enough. Every photographer who has lasted has depended on other peoples pictures too - photographs that may be public or private, serious or funny but that carry with them a reminder of community." Robert Adams

    Ah photography, one of my genuine joys. I used to stop so often on road trips the family would start yelling, but the backroads of America are sheer beauty. "Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop." Ansel Adams

    I wish your daughter well, just looking and then trying to capture the view is great stuff. I work mainly in Black and white and am an old Kodak Tri-X fan still. But slides of Nova Scotia or Route 212 in Montana and Wyoming are something to see. U.S. Route 212 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Best of luck.

    Check out Robert Adams, his book on Beauty is one of my favorite books. I still have lots of books even though I gave most away to a local college.

    Interesting site all the big names. Masters of Photography: Jacob Riis

    On the more idea side of photography, check out Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes; both are excellent. These with Adam's books are my favorites.

    I just pulled this book from my bookshelf. Interesting pictures and comments. The site looks interesting.

    I wish your family the best and good health for your daughter.

    That is very strange that one of the less virulent strains of HPV would lead to squamous cell carcinoma.
