Breast Series Collaboration with Cara Denison :: featuring the SUN RING
Breasts have the power and potential to nurture and sustain life. They protect the physical heart space as well. They epitomize the sacred feminine values of love, compassion, and wisdom. In cultures throughout the world, breasts are celebrated, exploited, and even condemned. We wanted to celebrate breasts as a symbol of source, much like the sun and the moon. To give recognition to the power of the feminine energy, not in dominance but in reverence. When objectified, breasts are reduced to a two dimensional representation of sex, diluting the importance of a mutual exchange. Through these images, we wanted to capture the essence of the breast from a woman's subjective view, as part of a reciprocity in paying homage to the uniqueness of our temporary vessels. This was a collaboration between Kate Rutter, Cara Denison, and all of the women who participated.
