Dublin City Council Inclusion and Integration Week presents the exhibition entitled Seen To Be Heard, curated by gallery Belfast Exposed. Award-winning photographer Jennifer Willis, featured 32 portraits of women from Northern Ireland all living with a secondary breast cancer diagnosis.
Jennifer started this project 6 months ago in her Belfast Studio and brought together 16 women, currently suffering from secondary breast cancer. They have united in their passion to educate people on the need for secondary cancer care services to be changed. Willis has created raw and captivating portraits of these women who bravely bare their scars and also portray their everyday lives.
This ground breaking work of artistry and activism aims to drive a sea change in the way Secondary Breast Cancer is perceived. These raw, emotionally revealing portraits were shot over a six month period as Willis worked with participants to build an understanding of their condition and the image they wish to present to the world. The artist’s approach within this exhibition and the use of colour, content and composition, give a sympathetic platform to these women’s voices.
Seen To Be Heard is open to the public to view this week by appointment only – booking information is available on www.dublincityinclusion.ie.
