The Breast Portrait Journals

by American artist Clarity Haynes.

“The Breast Portrait Project exists in the intersections of art and social intervention, merging drawing, painting, artist book production, documentary photography, and writing. My work is a subversion of traditional purposes of portraiture, with a focus on making discoveries and facilitating transformation in my subjects, myself, and in communities of viewers.

The Breast Portrait Journals are artist books documenting the project with photographs of subjects accompanied by their writings. The five original journals span fifteen years and several historical and cultural contexts, and contain the spontaneous handwritten entries of over 500 participants from 1998 to the present.”
