From the New York Times Travel Section, Sunday January 15th 2012
“This is my mom, Eva Grayzel, jumping for joy as the sun was setting. She is a 13-year survivor of Stage 4 tongue cancer. After getting a second chance at life, she now shares her personal survival story by traveling around the globe and educating people about oral cancer. This photo was taken during a weeklong road trip with my aunt and sister. My mom always plans side trips during her travel so she can visit new places and find inspiration.”
Jeremy Cohen, New York City
My son Jeremy is a photography student and sophomore at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. What a feather in his cap to have his photo on a full half page of the New York Times! People have asked me if he photo-shopped the picture because it looks unreal that I am jumping so high. I am only jumping a few inches off a small flat area of this rock.He took the photo upwards with a wide angle lens making it look like I’m flying. Jeremy captured what I feel with every new day of life I’m given.
