BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO GET YOUR TICKETS FOR THE DC EXHIBTION!!!
The SCAR Project international exhibition will premiere at gallery To Be Announced by Verde House in Washington, DC October 1-7, 2012, kicking off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month from our Nation’s Capital.
The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young women confronting breast cancer shot by fashion photographer David Jay. In this groundbreaking exhibition, a young generation of survivors reveals what really lies beneath the pink ribbons. The SCAR Project and its images have been featured in LIFE, Forbes, Psychology Today, Wall Street Journal, British Medical Journal, and numerous other publications. “Baring it All," a documentary about the SCAR Project, premiered on the Style Network and is currently being aired internationally. The portraits can be viewed at: http://www.thescarproject.org/
More than 100 women have traveled across America and from around the world to be photographed for The SCAR Project. “Participating in The SCAR Project felt like crawling out of a dark hole,” said Sarah, a young DC survivor diagnosed with breast cancer at 28. “A shoot with a fashion photographer is an exciting rarity. When I took the bus to New York City from DC, I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into, but I did know that making the decision to participate in The SCAR Project was a definitive marker of some small victory.” Sarah’s portrait is one of the 30 pictures in the touring exhibition.
The SCAR Project DC exhibition will be highlighted by a VIP/Press event (by invitation only) and a ticketed Opening Night and After Party. The gallery to host the DC premiere of The SCAR Project is TBA. The exhibition will be open for public viewing throughout the week of October 1-7 with free general admission. There will also be private gallery tours with photographer David Jay. The DC event will benefit multiple breast cancer organizations in the DC Metropolitan area, partnering with many diverse breast cancer groups that support patients, survivors, previvors, and women with the BRCA gene.
“Our goal is to make a strong statement by showing our country what breast cancer is really about. By supporting David Jay, we hope to change the way that people look at this disease and as such, get people to take the action that is needed to end it," says Donna Guinn Kaufman, a breast cancer survivor herself, The SCAR Project DC exhibition producer and founder of Kill the Beast Foundation. "However, utimately The SCAR Project looks deep underneath the pink ribbons revealing that it isn’t just about breast cancer; it’s about humanity. The SCAR Project inspire us to be better human beings to one another.”
