Last year, we shared Julia Gunther’s photographic documentary of her friend’s fight with cancer. Here’s the ending to Philipa’s Story.

In August of last year, we shared the incredible story of Philipa’s fight with cancer, as photographed by Julia Gunther. It is with great sadness that we recently learnt that Philipa lost the fight with cancer, and passed away on the 28th of February.

If you haven’t read the original post yet, please do so. Julia’s documentary of her friend’s struggle with a lethal disease showcases the power of photography as a medium.

Update: Philipa’s Story By Julia Gunther

  1. Hectic 🙁 so sorry for Julia’s and the family’s loss 🙁
    I can so relate, having done a similar photo journey of my aunt’s breast cancer last year.  Thankfully she’s in remission

  2. Very sorry to hear that Phillipa didnt make it, and that her and Julia will never be able to sit back and reflect on these images together.

    Julia – It’s a remarkable testament to your work, I’m sorry for your loss.

  3. Philipa was an amazing woman and she never gave up. We have all learned a lot from her. She is being missed a lot. As sad as the pictures are, Julia they are amazing.
