Breast Cancer Ballet Collages
When Annie was diagnosed on April fools day, 2005, we braved our war against breast cancer together, utilizing our creativity and our passion for each other to cope. We shaved each other’s heads after starting chemo, then posed for erotic photos while totally bald--thus creating a new genre of erotica; cancer erotica. We asked the oncologist for copies of Annie’s colorful radiation treatment plans. We juxtaposed old pin-up photos of Annie with the new topless scans, MRI images and other ephemera to create a series of collages.
