If there were a Pulitzer or Nobel Prize for body image work…

…this arresting photo essay by photographer Carl Bower would certainly be a contender. These 30 images and the accompanying text tell the story of a single mom named Diane who underwent a mastectomy, six months of chemo and breast reconstructive surgery. Diane is a hero. Not because she’s aggressively chipper, uncomplaining or stoic. This work is not a visual platitude. It’s real and the result is some serious beauty.
