BENEFITING: PLUTA CANCER CENTER FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: May 03, 2013
ChemoToxic, I Am That and Other Stories – representing photographer Willie Osterman’s documentation of his wife Michele’s chemotherapy and his fears that the disease might be lurking within his own body – will be presented at the Visual Studies Workshop beginning with an opening reception and fundraiser on May 3, 2013 from 6-9pm. The wet plate collodian process used by Osterman, an antiquated photographic technique developed in the 1850s, resulted in one-of-a-kind images printed on glass plates known as ambrotypes. Donate directly or become a team member and shave your head at the May 3 event as a way for others to pledge money in support of cancer patients. Those who shave their heads will be photographed by Osterman and become part of his project. All proceeds will benefit patients at Pluta Cancer Center, Rochester, NY.
