In 2006, Clare asked me to photograph her, as a way of remembering her body, and to creatively aid her transformation through double mastectomy. Eighteen months later, I photographed her again.

I have always been interested in notions of idealism and beauty in the female. For these sessions, my photographer’s eye and my feelings as a woman had to be equally engaged. I wanted to capture the beauty, courage, loss and hope I saw in Clare, both before and after her operation.
