Head (of a Woman)

In 2015 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Although I felt the need to document myself going through the treatment, I couldn’t even bare to look in the mirror, let alone create images of the scars due to the surgery and the body decay due to chemotherapy. Instead, I decided to create a study of my bare head. In The Netherlands alone, where I live, one out of five women will have breast cancer at some point in their lives and even though the treatment has improved considerably throughout the years, it remains very damaging both physically and psychologically.
