Tissue: a body of recovery

A catalogue of visual stories telling the diversity of breast cancer recovery.

Tissue is a visual resource, telling the stories of 100 people affected by breast cancer. Two portraits - one clothed, one nude - expose the treatment and recovery for each individual. With permission to view the often unseen, Tissue aims to support and inspire the breast cancer community.  

Two portraits contrast the public and the personal. Mastectomy scars, breast reconstructions, tattoos and "going flat" - the aesthetic decisions taken are as diverse and inspiring as the women who make them. We want to encourage those diagnosed to celebrate their unique physical changes and options.

Be one of our 100.

We’re looking for participants to tell their stories, and great partner organisations to make Tissue happen.
