Participants sought for project documenting the stories of breast cancer survivors and fighters

July 2, 2018

Newhouse School professor Tula Goenka and Syracuse photographer Cindy Bell are looking for Central New York breast cancer survivors and fighters to participate in the "Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer" multimedia exhibition at Syracuse University’s Point of Contact Gallery this October.

Participants must be willing to sit for both clothed and unclothed portraits, which will be presented as a juxtaposition of public persona (clothes on) and private struggle (clothes off). Survivors can also participate anonymously by a close-up of their bare chest posted with no accompanying name or other identifying information.

The goal of the project is to share stories of breast cancer survivors in their own voice, create awareness and provide support. Any Central New York resident who has been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer is encouraged to participate in photography sessions, happening now in Syracuse.

For more information, contact Goenka at 315-657-1680 or Gina Gayle 646-245-1241, or email
