The best way to educate is to start a dialogue, and the best way to get people talking is by bold, striking pictures. The SCAR Project came through Openhouse Gallery on Oct. 14 to showcase young women hit by breast cancer. More than 10,000 women younger than 40 are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. David Jay, the Australian photographer shot portraits of women between 18 and 35. They raised money, awareness and showcased the people. Jay mounted pictures – some more than three feet tall – behind non-glare Plexiglas on digital C-prints. Opening night also benefitted Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation. Travertine restaurant down the block on Kenmare St. in Nolita provided cocktails and appetizers.
