In large-scale canvas format, this collection of 15 color photographs documented the hope and light of cancer survivors and their families. “As a photographer, it’s an honor to celebrate the beauty of these amazing women.” Utilizing backlighting with miniature bulbs to create additional sparkle, Melani Lust created a series of work that is both playful and dramatic. She was interviewed by News 12 at the event.
