THE SCAR PROJECT: Breast Cancer is not a Pink Ribbon
A series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young [people].
Up until tonight I never knew exactly what breast cancer survivors looked like after surgery. These courageous [people] inspire, move and tastefully challenge our notions of beauty. How is it that cancer can reak such havoc on their bodies, yet they are still so unspeakably gorgeous?
Looking at these photos, I can’t imagine anyone trying to justify “Save the Boobies” merchandise. It is not about the boobies. It is about all these people.
