Our bodies are a beautiful thing. They give us the gift of life, but sometimes they work against us. For women facing breast cancer, the daunting decision to have a mastectomy can lead to feelings of loss, grief and insecurity.
Hope Emerges is an exhibition from photographer Lara Boddington, showcasing the beautiful female form after breast cancer. In these intimate images, shot against the backdrop of New Zealand’s glorious landscape, women tell their stories through the medium of the camera lens.
