MOMENTS IN TIME (article first published : 2003-10-21)

Cape Town photographer Michael Lyster and photographic assistant Francois Oberholzer, together with stylist Ryno Mulder and make-up artist Ronel Dapp, have created the images used for a calender titled Moments in Time.

Aiming to instil hope in others, the calendar features moving and compelling black and white photographs some smiling, some wistful of 14 cancer patients. Taken from all walks of life, these are real-life survivors in various stages of their struggle with different types of cancer.

Sponsor of the project is AstraZeneca whose medical director Matt Haus provides a short but profound narrative to each photograph.

About 150 photographs of each model were taken to get the perfect shot, the equivalent of almost 11 rolls of film.

The Moments in Time 2004 calendar will be sold for R150 (wall calendar) and R60 (CD desk calendar). AstraZeneca challenges South African companies to support the fight against cancer through the purchase of the 2004 calendar, which can be used for staff or corporate gifts.

Proceeds from sales will go into a cancer trust fund for patients. Calendars can be ordered by calling 0861 66 66 00.
