National Breast Cancer Foundation
I haven’t I posted anything new up here since I returned from Seoul and Tokyo months ago but I’ve been quietly busy behind the scenes.
One of my latest projects (and one of my all time favourites) has been a series of portraits for the National Breast Cancer Foundation to help them launch this years Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
I worked in conjunction with Marlin Communications to create six portraits of women who have all suffered from breast cancer. Sadly, the statistics are one in six women will not survive beyond five years after treatment which makes the work and support of NBCF so essential.

Anni passed away in 2007 and it was a real honour for me to create something beautiful for her family in her memory.
For the other five amazing ladies who have survived, we really wanted to celebrate their lives and achievements with these pink paper ribbon portraits.

You can read all these ladies’ stories on the Pink Ribbon Breakfast website (link at top).
I thought I would also include some behind the scenes shots so you can see the work that went into the project over 6 weeks:

I am really proud to have been involved with this fantastic organisation in some small way.
Pink Ribbon Breakfasts usually take place in October and help to raise much needed funds for the NBCF so I urge you to show your support!
