Summary

Pulitzer Prize–winning photographs document a single mother’s emotional and financial struggles as her son battles a rare form of childhood cancer.

This collection of photographs presents photojournalist Renée C. Byer’s Pulitzer Prize–winning series, “A Mother’s Journey,” along with other early and recent photographs. “A Mother’s Journey” is an intimate portrayal of a single mother’s emotional and financial struggles as her son battles neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. This year-long documentary project was originally published in the Sacramento Bee as a four-part series and on the Web as a multimedia package. In addition to the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography in 2007, the series won a World Understanding Award and the Society of Professional Journalist’s Sigma Delta Chi Award for feature photography. “When done well,” said Byer, “photojournalism is a powerful tool because it connects people to the reality of life and can bring understanding and awareness to important issues.”

Renée C. Byer, who grew up in the mid-Hudson Valley, was the winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in Feature Photography and is the ninth James H. Ottaway Sr. Professor of Journalism at the State University of New York at New Paltz. Her series of photography on biotechnology, titled, “Seeds of Doubt,” won the Harry Chapin Media Award for World Hunger in Photojournalism in 2005. The series also won first place in the Best Photojournalism contest sponsored by the National Press Photographers Association. In 2005 she was awarded the McClatchy President’s Award for her photographs in the “Women at War” series. She is currently Senior Photojournalist at the Sacramento Bee, one of the nation’s top newspapers, and has worked around the country at a number of dailies.
