“It is such an honor and a privilege to support Bob Carey and his Tutu Project by offering these limited edition pink Plus III radio triggers for auction,” said Dave Schmidt, LPA Design’s VP of Marketing. “Bob’s selflessness and devotion to helping raise funds for women battling breast cancer is truly inspiring.”
Bob Carey is a commercial photographer from Arizona with decades of photography experience. Carey’s wife Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer nine years ago. A self-portrait enthusiast who had previously transformed himself in several series of artistic images, Bob began photographing himself in a pink tutu following his wife’s breast cancer diagnosis. Linda shared these images with her fellow patients while they were receiving cancer treatment. Soon the Tutu Project was born, and all proceeds from the prints go to the non-profit Carey Foundation, which provides transportation, meals, and other daily needs to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. Images from the Tutu Project have been collected in the recently self-published book Ballerina.
Images and prints from the Tutu Project can be found at the Tutu Project site http://www.thetutuproject.com/. His book Ballerina, other Tutu Project gear, and donation information can be found here: http://www.thetutuproject.com/support-the-tutu-project/.
