Bill's third book of photographs,
New Beginnings: The Triumphs of 120 Cancer Survivors, consists of interviews and photographic portraits of
120 cancer survivors, ages 2 through 99. New Beginnings
explores the question of what happens during the "silent phase" of cancer
after treatment ends, when the flurry of treatment and doctor's appointments
is replaced with a gaping silence. Jane E. Brody, the NY Times health
columnist, wrote the introduction with prefaces by Peter Yarrow (of Peter,
Paul & Mary), U.S. Congressman Henry Waxman, and Rabbi David Wolpe.
The book has 224 pages with 160 full color photographs. For more on
