Ballerina is about more than a man wearing a pink tutu. This incredible book of images by Bob Carey from The Tutu Project is here just in time for the holidays. Pleasantly priced at $50, it’s the perfect coffee table book for anyone who’s been touched by breast cancer or simply enjoys being transported through the lens of a professional photographer. The 9” x 12” artist quality book features 61 images and the often humorous stories behind them. You’ll see Carey at famous landmarks and in obscure settings—all united by a singular theme: a man in his pink tutu bearing all in support of his wife, Linda, and those who have been afflicted by breast cancer. Net proceeds from sales of Ballerina go to The Carey Foundation, which was established by the couple to help people cope with financial burdens that often accompany the disease. Visit www.thetutuproject.com to see more of the heartwarming images and to order your copy in time for the holidays.
What I Thought:
This is a great book for a good cause-Breast Cancer. Bob Carey’s wife Linda has faced 2 bout with Breast Cancer and is his partner and inspiration for this book. The best part of Ballerina is that the net proceeds go directly to The Carey Foundation, a 501(c)3 with the mission to provide comfort and assistance to those affected by breast cancer.
As a recent breast cancer survivor, Ballerina really touched something inside of me. I was deeply moved by a husband who was willing to expose everything (body and soul) for the whole world to see in moral support of his wife.
The pictures in this book are both funny (I mean they are pictures of a guy in a PINK tutu) and beautifully poignant (because of both his expressions/posture and the reasons behind the pictures).
This is definitely a beautiful coffee table book that you can purchase and feel like you’re contributing to a good cause (remember the net proceeds go to The Carey Foundation for breast cancer survivors).
