Women Who’ve Beaten Cancer Take Powerful Nude Photos That Proudly Bear Their Mastectomy Scars


It's the female body in rare form — completely exposed, but proudly bearing scars.

Photographer Isis Charise has shot a number of breast cancer survivors in the nude so that the women can show their beauty with their mastectomy scars.

In the photo series, entitled Grace, the women are posed romantically in goddess-inspired sets, emulating the likes of Venus and Aphrodite.

Charise said the decision to pose her models as Greek goddesses and other mythical figures highlights the women's natural beauty.

Although the photos might be NSFW, they're still a poignant reminder of the beauty that exists in a body even after it's been damaged by illness.
