Bob Carey fotografiert seinen haarigen Arsch im Tutu für die Krebsforschung, seit seine Frau vor ein paar Jahren an Brustkrebs erkrankte.
New York photographer Bob Carey has been posing for self-portraits across the country in nothing more than a wisp of pink tulle for almost nine years. While one might assume his wife would be quite embarrassed, the posing is actually for her sake.
“Linda’s used to it,” says Carey. “She has a great sense of humor and has always been my biggest supporter.”
In 2003, Carey’s wife, Linda, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She beat it, only to have it recur in 2006. She has been undergoing chemotherapy ever since. Print and book sales from the Tutu Project portrait series will raise money for breast cancer research.
The pink tutu, surprisingly, was actually in Carey’s wardrobe before Linda’s illness. Nine years ago, a commercial assignment for Ballet Arizona gave him the idea for the portraits.
