Costuras – living with breast cancer is a photographic exhibition that is available to any organization wishing to raise social awareness about cancer.
Since its launch in 2009, more than 200 women have participated as models. Some agreed to be photographed out of solidarity with a friend or someone in their family. Others have or had cancer themselves, and had the courage to openly show their scars, thus sharing their true commitment to life.
These women are the true heroes of our project. The exhibition is dedicated to them, with our most sincere gratitude and respect for their positive attitude and inner strength.

Every new day is a battle that has been won. There isn't a secret way to fight it, just the conviction that life is there to be enjoyed, to be lived to the bone and the stern belief that cancer is not going to defeat you.Paloma
That cancer brought me a huge lesson. There was strength, determination, will to fight and positive thinking. It showed me the value of my own will.Paz
During the process I learnt to take life from another perspective, to gain some distance from problems in order to avoid being swallowed by them.Sonia
