Charity Posters

These are the first two of a series of poster ideas I’ve designed to raise money for cancer charities. Cancer is the scourge of modern living with over 1/3 of people expected to have a cancer in their lifetime. I have always used art as a social tool but highlighting issues isn’t the same as tackling them. By these artworks raising money they have a direct effect on the issue.

 25% of sales of these posters goes to Breast Cancer UK. One in eight women will get breast cancer. In what is described by some as an epidemic, it is increasingly understood that environmental factors play a huge part. BCUK is a small underfunded charity that works on a prevention strategy that I believe is an excellent approach rather than focussing simply on a cure.

A2 size (42 x 59.4 cm / 16.5 x 23.4 inches) on 150gsm silk paper, delivered in a strong, wide, cardboard tube to prevent damage or curling.
Easily and cheaply framed!! They can be purchased directly via my webshop on The Great Wall of Vagina site.

I created these posters in the same way as my larger Physical Photography body portraits using a converted document scanner as my camera. The process slightly abstracts the body in an almost comical, cartoon-like way producing images that are at the same time realistic but non-representational. They are analogous in some ways to The Great Wall of Vagina, by having hundreds of images of different women in a grid they demonstrate human variety as a whole and do not objectify the individual. They neatly sidestep pornographic or erotic connotations, instead showing the body and underwear in a new and highly original way.

Model for my posters…

Further posters in the series will be similar, featuring pants, groins, bums and faces to highlight and raise funds to tackle other cancers. I desperately need literally hundreds of models in order to complete them. If you like what I’m doing please do email me. I literally can’t do it without you. I have studios in the UK and Florida but can also scan you anywhere I’m travelling as my equipment is mobile so do get in touch! You may wish to read the Models page for more information. Discretion assured.
