The LOVE Project is a series of a one minute photo shoot of 100 couples in love - this picture is a portrait of my best friend, Claire, and her husband, Neeraj - when Claire was diagnosed with breast cancer, and had to undergo aggressive chemotherapy, her hair loss was a difficult side effect. Neeraj showed his love and support by shaving his head. This photo is how I see LOVE.

    It is not easy to get a picture like this, I would think it is unconfortable to take a picture to somebody with cancer. Your friend is really inspiring to me as she accepted you to take that picture, so do you to share this moment with the world. Congratulations.

    Lucia De Giovanni said (22 Oct 2011):

    Thank you all for your kind comments and wishes -
    Jose Antonio, my friend is truly inspiring - she actually asked me to document the whole process for her, as, as she put it, she wanted me to find the beauty in it, while she couldn't. I documented her strength, love and vulnerability, and through it all, I tried to find the beauty in it all.... for her, for her husband, and for her two beautiful children, who are too young to understand cancer. One day, I hope they will look back at all the photos and know their mother is truly a hero.
