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 recently won a Daytime Emmy. 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 Hour Party. The gallery to host the DC premiere of The SCAR Project is To Be Announced. 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. The SCAR Project DC Exhibition producer Donna Guinn Kaufman, herself a breast cancer survivor states, “Our goal is to make a strong statement by showing our country what breast cancer is really about. Ultimately however, 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 is meant to inspire us to be better human beings to one another." For more information, contact: The SCAR Project DC, Donna Guinn Kaufman, producer, email@example.com.
