(EAST GALLERY) A Fine Art & Photography Essay of Survivors – Is an all breast cancer survivor project for awareness, fundraising, inspiration and healing worldwide. One of the main project goals is a coffee table book with 50 survivor images and a glimpse of their stories. Followed by, a goal of getting the portraits shown in hospitals, oncology clinics and surgeons offices; while building exposure and support for a national or international gallery tour.
Photography, like art, has the power to empower. To encourage.To create possibilities. To heal wounds. This is a form of art therapy for both the participants and the viewers alike. The project will illustrate cancer’s total lack of any mercy or prejudice regarding who and when it strikes. BCABPP hopes to spotlight survivors of all ages, backgrounds, shapes & sizes during various stages of their process of pre, post or non reconstructive options. All the designs are custom made for each survivor and relate in some way to their character traits, personality, passions, interests or other aspects of their story. All of these images are created in a way that also translates to the larger breast cancer experience.
Describing a myriad of moods, emotions, thoughts and fears in common to many survivors. Some themes are light, positive and inspiring while others may be a bit deeper, darker and thought provoking – still others single out a specific issue such as early detection, or genetics.
The nudity required is tasteful, child safe even, and is not used for impact but rather to
emphasize the human nature and form. Their human figures tell a story – like the hands of a worker show their history.
