Remember Me: A Conversation

15 Years in the Making


For 17 years, Preston Gannaway has been photographing EJ and Rich St. Pierre. The Remember Me series, now a forthcoming photobook, began when Gannaway and Chelsea Conaboy were young journalists at the Concord Monitor. For nearly two years, they intimately chronicled the St. Pierres as they struggled to cope with a parent’s terminal illness. Carolynne St. Pierre, a maternity nurse at Concord Hospital, died in February 2007. The work was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for feature photography the following year.

Gannaway stayed in touch with family. EJ — Carolynne and Rich’s youngest son who had been four years-old when Carolynne died — became the focus of the project. Remember Me spans Gannaway’s time with the family. Images of everyday details, landscapes and portraits collectively create a longitudinal essay on the impermanence of the human experience. 

Please join us on Wed., Sept. 13, as writer Chelsea Conaboy leads a discussion between Preston and the St. Pierres about their on-going project. This special event organized for the Concord community will be a powerful exploration into the intersections between storyteller, subject and audience.
We hope the evening will highlight the resiliency of survivors and be a testament to the deep relationships that can evolve from community journalism.
