Project Survive is a photography initiative that seeks to reveal the triumphant side of young Pediatric Cancer patients, survivors and families.
The aim of Project Survive is to photograph young Cancer survivors in black-and-white portrait form, in an attempt to display the strength, courage, and beauty that exists within every young person affected by childhood Cancer.
It is often assumed that Cancer alters one’s life for good, in a negative way. Project Survive will disprove this theory.
Project Survive will show that those who outlast disease are stronger for it, and that above all, they are extraordinary. The incredible young people that we have worked with are resilient, strong, and very much alive. They are survivors. For that, we must celebrate their lives.
By photographing them in black-and-white, with a clear emphasis on their scars, Project Survive is attempting to show, in the purest form possible, what these young people have overcome. By supporting Project Survive, you are supporting survival.
While the most important part of this project is the group of inspiring survivors that we will have the honor of working with, the project does require funding in order for the final product to be as perfect as possible. We are hoping that, through generous donations, we can raise funds for things like printing costs, framing supplies and catering for the exhibit debut.
