CANCER: a composition
Tara told me that her biggest fear is that her boyfriend may lose his attraction for her while she’s sick, not wanting to touch her. The picture above was one of the least flattering from the session but I chose it because of what it is, COURAGE. It has the most visible documentation of her symptoms, from the lesions on her skin, the lumpy protrusion of her port, down to the two scars in close proximity to each tattoo. The ink is the art of her children, in namesake, Justise and Maddox. She fights for them and her body is a battleground…
I am also going to mention for the sake of vanity that Tara DOES have breasts; I just posed her poorly and the effect was quite severe. Poignantly so.
