Take Them Both represents a chapter in many women's journey with breasts cancer.
To women of her generation, privacy and faith play pivotal roles in how they manage trauma. For some women, details about their body and their health are considered very private matters and therefore not openly shared. But that privacy can lead to isolation, and it can prevent them from learning about how the experience will affect their lives.
The woman's anonymity in this photo series serves to respect her generation's desire for privacy, while also respecting the indelible need for women to see and to understand a drastic and necessary alteration of an intimate part of their bodies and identity as a woman.
It is not often that we can be there in the moment with a woman as she walks toward this new horizon. The photos reveal the practical preparation of this personal choice, and respect the universal need to learn from others' life experiences.
