About

Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer is a photo exhibition of breast cancer survivors using a series of clothed and bare chest portraits, and an accompanying interactive documentary. The multimedia project aims to break down the barrier between a survivor’s public persona and their private struggles with the disease. The project was started by Tula Goenka, who is a breast cancer survivor. She is also a filmmaker, author, human rights activist and professor at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University.

Professor Goenka is currently looking for residents of Central New York to participate in the multimedia project. Her goal is to address the human rights aspect of access to health care, and how differences in income, race, ethnicity and geographic location can impact diagnosis, treatment and survival. Any Central New York resident who has been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer is encouraged to apply.

The next phase of the Look Now: Facing Breast Cancer Project will include a website that will feature images, provide support and list resources; be an artistic testament to living well after the disease; and above all, empower the people who participate.

Cindy Bell, the famed Syracuse photographer, is going to create the portraits.
