The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.
Although Jay began shooting The SCAR Project primarily as an awareness raising campaign, he was not prepared for something much more immediate … and beautiful: “For these young women, having their portrait taken seems to represent their personal victory over this terrifying disease. It helps them reclaim their femininity, their sexuality, identity and power after having been robbed of such an important part of it. Through these simple pictures, they seem to gain some acceptance of what has happened to them and the strength to move forward with pride.

Incredible Scenes of a California Wildfire
Last Thursday, May 30th, a wildfire started in California’s Angeles National Forest, just a short distance north of Los Angeles. The fire was pushed by dry, erratic winds that destroyed at least six homes near Lake Hughes and damaged many more. The 32,000-acre wildfire has more than 2,000 firefighters working in hot, dry conditions. As of June 4th, the fire is 60% contained.
