About the Event

Phillip and Maggie are both celebrated photographers who turned their cameras on themselves and the ones closest to them at a time of deep introspection—the end of their parents’ lives.

While both originally started photographing these events for their personal albums, their experiences magnified in importance over the years spent with their aging parents. As time passed, caring for their parents brought them through a process of self discovery that taught them as much about themselves as the loved ones for which they were caring. 

In the end, both Phillip and Maggie were left with bodies of work which relate not only their personal journeys, but speak to universal themes of love, life and family. MediaStorm is proud to have partnered with both Phillip and Maggie to tell their individual stories. 

On June 11 MediaStorm will present both films for the first time. After the screening Phillip and Maggie will be available for a question and answer session about their experiences.


A Shadow Remains by Phillip Toledano

A Shadow Remains Poster

Phillip Toledano is an artist. His life has been marked by the passing of family. Each death diverting the river slightly. A Shadow Remains brings us through Toledano’s life as he considers the impact that love and loss have had on his life and the life of his family. 

"I'm so clearly conscious of everything that they gave me now,” says Phillip. “Now that they're gone their shadow remains and I see what a strong and lengthy shadow that is.”

Rite of Passage by Maggie Steber

Rite of Passage Poster

When Madje’s dementia proved relentless, her daughter, photographer Maggie Steber, moved her life to care for her. Among the darkness, Maggie documented the beauty of a liberation from the roles she and her mother had learned to play—a discovery she felt gave her the mother she always wanted. 

“This body of work is the most important one I have ever done,” says Maggie, “and will ever do. It’s Madje’s story, but really and truly, it’s my story.”
