Portraits of Grace, Inspiration, and Possibilities
Press On Regardless
Add to Wish List
Hats and head scarves are nowhere to be seen in these
portraits of women who have lost their hair during treatment
for cancer. Each picture, taken by a well-known
photographer, captures bald women too intent on work or play
to be bashful about their looks—among others, Melissa
Etheridge belts out a Janis Joplin tune at the 2005 Grammys,
a rodeo cowgirl poses with the cowboys, a surfer climbs a
wave in Hawaii, and a nun scrutinizes her poker hand. A
foreword and afterword by the author describe the genesis of
the book, her own experience with cancer and hair loss, and
the brave women who posed for pictures. Photo credits and
profiles are provided for the photographers, who include
Eddie Adams, Debbie Fleming Caffery, Reuben Cox, Rob
Gauthier, Lauren Greenfield, David Hume Kennerly, Antonin
Kratchovil, Harry Langdon, Gerd Ludwig, Jay Maisel,
Catherine Opie, Harvey Stein, Nick Vedros, and Annie Wells.
