This Thursday, photographer Isis Charise will give a talk in the Black Box on her photographic work, The Grace Project. Creating sensitive, beautiful portraits, Isis returns women’s body positivity body after cancer and mastectomy surgery have altered their shape. Four of her photos are included in the Reflection Redefined, a show of student, alumni, and professional artwork on the theme of body image. There will be an opening reception from 5-7 p.m., open to the public.

 

Reflection Redefined is the DECA project of Kate Kalinowski and Kira Porter, providing 2 weeks of activities and programs around body positivity. The show also includes art and writing from guests Elizabeth Foot and The Get Over It Campaign, alumni Chrissy Doucette (’10), Alexa Potenza and Melissa Taing (’12), Julia San Clemente (’15), and students Divya Bawa, Atira Cheney, Chloe Fay, Naomi Greenspan, Colleen Kasparzak, Amber Mooers, Annie May, and Kendall Sweeney.
