RHEA LEWIS PHOTOGRAPHY

Warrior Goddess Movement: 

A Healing Photo Journey for Breast Cancer Survivors

Exhibit runs April 1 – 30, 2019

Benefits:


MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER
and
LIGHTHOUSE DRAGONS SOS

The purpose of Rhea’s charity project is being able to help breast cancer survivors see their beauty in a new way, to get comfortable in their own skin, and to redefine and re-connect who they are as woman after their diagnosis. It’s not about showing their scars and the ugly side of cancer, but about forgetting their scars, celebrating their beauty as women no matter what their new body looks like.  The imagery is truly a representation of the beautiful inner light that all women share and it reminds them that the scars don’t define them.

 

 

 

 

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer:

The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days aweek to help people touched by cancer. Breast cancer is the number one reason people call the Society. When you support Making Strides, you are helping the Society seek better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing the disease.

Lighthouse Dragons SOS:

Lighthouse Dragons is a dragon boat team composed of breast cancer survivors and their supporters. We promote a healthy and life affirming activity through the sport of dragon boating. Each of us is a powerful example that one can lead a full and active life after a diagnosis of breast cancer.

She has photographed women at various stages in their diagnosis from those just diagnosed to 10-year survivors.

Jeffrey is also a figurative artist, and publisher of TheGreatNude.tv, a web-video magazine featuring artists who are dedicated to the nude.

“Anna, Reclining” iPad drawing with Jeffrey Wiener

 

Jeffrey tells The Rickie Report,Since my near death experience, I have been rethinking what it means to be an artist. I thought I knew why I am here. I know little with certainty now except that life is short, and each of us has to blossom like a flower in this time we have. The artist observes things others cannot see, and has the unique ability to communicate what has been observed in ways that illuminate and reveal something new about humanity. That may be the artist’s only purpose. To observe and reveal”.
