Shane Epping, a photographer and professor at Mizzou, spoke about his story on losing his daughter, Faye.
“A day before the birthday of our daughter, the doctor told us that he couldn’t hear a heart beat,” said Epping.
When he knew his daughter would die, he began filming, photographing, and recording everything about their journey.
“As a professional photographer, this has led me to volunteer work. I have photographed 60 families in Boone County with similar problems,” said Epping.
All of his work has culminated in an audio slideshow and a chapter in the words matter book, which was released on the fourth anniversary of Faye’s birthday.
“I feel like this is what sets Mizzou apart from the other j-schools across the country,” said Lexie Churchill. “There’s so much to learn in a classroom but when the professors take time to teach outside it can really add a lot.”
