 RECONSTRUCTED

What can truly capture the physical, psychological, and emotional impact of a woman fighting breast cancer, her treatment, and life-changing experience?

Reconstructed is a series of photographs about women of all ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds who have undergone breast reconstruction surgery – and have the scars to prove it.

Kintsugi is the art of repairing broken pottery with gold. Taken from the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, it embraces the flawed and imperfect signifying beauty in overcoming adversity. The same goes for humans; we can paint our struggles with gold and wear our scars proudly – we are more beautiful as people because of the adversity we have gone through.

Reconstructed is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection, and healing. The images are raw and emotional. They represent the women’s personal victory over the disease, reclaiming their identity and femininity after going through their treatment.

STORIES

 

Ultimately, Reconstructed is not about breast cancer, but about love, compassion, hope, and understanding. It’s about art and expressing ourselves as human beings. The images glorify the beauty of the inspiring women who wear the scars that connect us all.
