Spectator photo project will feature those affected by suicide
You have told us you want to share your stories of loved ones lost to suicide.
Response has been overwhelming to Nicole’s Story, a long look at the life, mental illness and suicide of 20-year-old Nicole Patenaude by Hamilton Spectator columnist Susan Clairmont. Published earlier this month, the story has resonated deeply with readers. Many of you have contacted us wanting to talk about your relatives and friends who have died by suicide.
To keep that conversation going, The Spectator is launching a photo project called Left Behind.
Our photojournalists will take portrait photos of those affected by suicide. The portraits will be published in The Spectator.
