Moving exhibition shows what it is to care with Marie Curie – A new photographic exhibition by Patrick Olner

They are there to help and support during the darkest days of people’s lives, bringing gentle comfort and some order to the process of dealing with terminal cancer. Marie Curie provides care and support for more than 40,000 terminally ill people and their families in the UK each year. From the simplest of gestures like the holding of a hand, making a cup of tea, to the nursing of those whose lives are ending, legions of volunteers and nurses go the extra mile so every day. Now their work and care has been documented in a project which is about to form an exhibition in the Pierhead in Cardiff.

Freelance photographer Patrick Olner from Porth in Rhondda Cynon Taf spent just over a year recording the support offered by the charity’s volunteers in south, west and north Wales. His black and white photos capture everything from the tender arms around a patient, the nurses heading out to people’s homes, to the fundraisers who try to boost the charity’s income.
