The SCAR Project presents a series of female breast imagery, perhaps not the one your eyes want to see every day. It shows a gallery of young breast cancer survivors shot by a fashion photographer David Jay. The photos expose the woman’s body after the treatment – something I couldn’t quite visualize in full detail before I saw this.
I must say, the scars completely change the game for these women.
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 women. Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing. The mission is three-fold: raise public consciousness of early-onset breast cancer, raise funds for breast cancer research/outreach programs and help young survivors see their scars, faces, figures and experiences through a new, honest and ultimately empowering lens.
