A body of work that, through revisiting Art History, challenges beauty, social ideals, stigmas and such in the context of contemporary women facing Cancer. The series is divided into two parts: one is made up of Portaits of patients and surviors modeled after their favorite iconic painting of a woman, and the other, a collection of re-constructed images of iconic paintings, using contemporary source photos.
