Portrait Of A Breast Cancer Survivor

bernadette_blog_webI had the privledge to photograph Bernadette last Friday afternoon. Her sister in-law contacted me via the web. The two women drove all the way from outside Philadelphia (4 hour drive)

to have me capture Bernadette and to share her journey. I was moved to tears after they left my studio and was not able to work for the rest of day. The shoot was intense. Bernadette is so incredibly brave. These are her words:

“Most people think of cancer only on the inside. I see cancer on the outside everyday. Even though I smile, I see and feel pain constantly. Whether inside or outside this is what cancer looks like”

I plan on having another black and white portrait  show late this fall on Breast Cancer Awareness and I will hang her images proudly.
