Photos of Jennifer, Angelo Merendino
Angelo Merendino is an Akron native who has lived in Nashville, Taos, and most recently New York City. Angelo studied photography at Cuyahoga Community College where he focused on people and relationships. His photographs have been published in The New York Times, The Guardian, The USA Today, ZEIT, Polka, and La Repubblica.
In 2008, just five months after marrying Jennifer, the girl of his dreams, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After Jennifer’s cancer metastasized in 2010, Angelo found that the most effective way to communicate and share their daily challenges was with his camera. The resulting body of work was first exhibited in Cleveland and has since been shown in New York City, Brooklyn, Rome, Italy, and Washington DC.
Angelo’s blog about Jennifer and his experience with breast cancer has been honored as a top caregiving site by Healthline.com, Everydayhealth.com, and Caring.com.
