London: Nick Daly

Nick Daly was asked by Conran Design to photograph two documents for Cancer Research UK - the Annual Report (portraits of senior management), and the Annual Review, a series of portraits of patients in remission and clinical staff working around the UK.

The shoot covered almost four weeks of travel from Southampton to Inverness, via Oxford and Cambridge. The locations: hospitals, laboratories and homes.

It is surprising that children featured so prominently among the patients, some under the age of five; some with no trauma or even physical scars. All were wonderful examples of recuperation, clinical care, optimism and a stoic good humour. All clinicians and patients were a pleasure to work with.
