Nena – 99 Luftballons, in this fine art photography I depict the resilience and strength of women who have faced breast cancer. The 99 pink balloons arranged as a curtain in front of the woman symbolize the overwhelming, yet ultimately surmountable, challenges that cancer presents. By only allowing the viewer to see the breast with the scar, I highlight the physical and emotional scars that cancer leaves behind. Through this photo, I aim to start a conversation about the importance of breast cancer awareness and the bravery of those who have faced and overcome this disease.
This is certainly not the only way you can understand the photo. I create the art, but the interpretation is up to you!
