Grace Project

Grace Project

“Grace” is a series of portraits of women who have experienced Mastectomy Surgery in order to survive breast cancer.

Photographer Charise loosely uses Hellenic sculpture as a visual reference for the portraits, taking inspiration from such artifacts as the “Venus De Milo” and “Nike of Samathrace”.  These dismembered artifacts have survived the trauma of history and are still valued as objects of beauty within our culture.
