Sunrise; A Story of Healing and Coping With Grief, With Mark Potter


Sunrise; A Story of Healing and Coping With Grief, With Mark Potter

Mark Potter

One month after retiring as a news correspondent with NBC, Mark Potter found himself in the role as cancer caregiver for his wife Judith. As a way to find some solitude during this difficult time, /mark began photographing the beautiful sunrises of Miami, Florida. After Judith’s death in April of 2019, Mark found this early morning routine to be a source of comfort, or as he put it, his “church without a roof.”

During our conversation we discussed:

  • How he transitioned from a “hard news” correspondent to “photographer.”
  • The reason why he chose to photograph sunrises.
  • How time alone helped him be a better caregiver to his wife, Judith.
  • How this time of solitude helps him cope with the loss of his wife.
  • The community he’s become a part of during these early morning shoots.
  • The possibility of his photos being selected for display at a local hospital.
