This collection of photographs presents photojournalist Rene 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 as well 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."
