After the actress Lynn Redgrave learned she had breast cancer in December 2002, she chose to undergo surgery, followed by a half-year regimen of chemotherapy and radiation. She also asked her daughter Annabel Clark, then a photography student at Parsons School of Design, if she would photograph the course of treatment and recovery.[One photo maybe NSFW] Sadly, after battling the disease for more than seven years, the Oscar and Tony-nominated actress passed away yesterday at the age of 67.

Last year, Redgrave gave an interview to the New York Times before the opening of her introspective play "Nightingale” in which she discussed her maternal grandmother, and being a stage IV breast cancer survivor. An additional 14-minute audio interview with PJ Ochlan about the play is available here, in m3u format.
Ms. Redgrave was Oscar nominated for her roles in "Georgy Girl" and "Gods and Monsters" and won a Drama Desk Award and was nominated for a Tony for her role in "The Constant Wife."
She was an aunt to Natasha Richardson, who died last year in a skiing accident, and is survived by her sister, Vanessa Redgrave.
