NEW Breast Cancer Survivor Project Images Released
The Breast Cancer Awareness Body Painting Project: A Fine Art & Photography Essay of Survivors recently released the next two images in the ongoing all survivor series seeking to promote awareness and raise funds for various Breast Cancer causes.
The two newest official releases are numbers 6 and 7 in the planned 50 image series. So far 23 women from all over the United States and as far away as Australia have come to South Florida to be painted and photographed for this inspiring project.
The project aims to include women of all ages, backgrounds, sizes, and shapes as well as various stages of their journey be it pre, post or non-reconstructive.
Each image is custom designed and tailored to the participating survivor. Their design symbolizes something important to them or their personality and relates to the larger story of a breast cancer survivor. Many of the images have layers of details and symbolism but you'll have to buy the book (when it's done) to get the most details, behind the scenes images and most importantly the survivor stories and bios.
The lastest issue is "The Year that Was" - an image designed to promote the importance of Early Detection. The image of a classic pocket watch etched with the saying "Every Second Counts" additionally speaks to the importance of appreciating life in general and not taking for granted the finite time we have. The second hand leaving a pink trail across her breast that had the cancer. As the hands fly around the face with the passing of time, the numbered days of the week and month that made up that fateful year explode out and drift around her body. Her sons birthdate is represented by month and day near her c-section scar as he was a BIG part of her motivation for cancer survival.
Next, is "Bamboo & Butterflies"
The images in the series are available as fine art prints and framed pieces with 15% of the profits being donated.
Additional products such as coffee mugs, mousepads, journal books, calendars and greeting cards just to name a few are available at http://www.cafepress.com/
