Inspiration Phase | Week 5 | The SCAR Project

scar7scar5 scar8scar6

This project was created by photographer David Jay. His preference is to let the young women confronting their own absolute reality of surviving cancer, speak their own thousand words or so through their SCAR portraits. The SCAR Project: Breast Cancer is Not a Pink Ribbon is a book and is available on Amazon. I like the way David Jay has shot his photographs in that he has let his subject be completely open. We can clearly see in the last image here the woman crying. The emotions of baring her scars are clearly visible to us the audience. Yet she can show us what she is most insecure about, that is true bravery. The second photo above shows a woman in her own bedroom. Perhaps she wanted to be photographed in her own environment as it made her feel more comfortable. This is something I would have to take into consideration, the settings of the photos.
