Los Angeles based fashion photographer Giuliano Bekor reveals the incredible “Transcendence” series of photographs where he projected real breast cancer cells onto the bodies of his models in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and to benefit the Foundation For Living Beauty. Their role is to Educate, Uplift and Empower women along their cancer journeys.
TRANSCENDENCE is a collection of limited edition, powerful, fine art photography that highlights the courage of female cancer survivors as seen through the eyes of photographer Giuliano Bekor, paying tribute to the body’s power to heal, renew and “transcend” into a state of harmony and bliss. Blending the profound mission embodied by the Foundation for Living Beauty with his visionary techniques, Giuliano Bekor projects real breast cancer cells onto the body of his models, challenging viewers to overcome social taboos attached to the disease.
“The collection brings a sense of universality, emphasizing the progression of self through concept and color. It shows the surpassing of inner battles and the transition into a higher and limitless state. The idea is to capture evolutions on a cellular level, using the body as a canvas to project its wonders and the beauty found within. Analyzing the entire collection, one comes across frequent states of duality, mirrored bodies, different hypostasis of the breast, and the “kiss of life.” Each key element is a messenger, revealing our ability to transcend the limitations of the physical realm” Says Giuliano Bekor.
