Shave to Save
Every year, the American Cancer Society puts on an event to benefit Hope Lodge Kansas City. Hope Lodge provides food and housing for patients during treatment that live far enough away from their care facility that it would cause a burden. Every year, volunteers from across the city take donations and at the final event shave theirs heads to show their support of those battling cancer. As the father of a cancer survivor and the son of cancer victim, the American Cancer Society is an organization I'm honored to work with. Knowing how much the Hope Lodge helped my mother during her treatment made this project even more fulfilling for me.
In an effort to help raise awareness of this wonderful charity event, I set out to create imagery that would grab attention to what the event is all about. I set my sights on creating artful before and after portraits of the shavers.
