Photographer Isis Charise began The Grace Project as a way to celebrate breast cancer survivors who'd undergone mastectomies.
Charise began the project after meeting a woman who was a 12-year breast cancer survivor.
Each photograph re-imagines a breast cancer survivor as a mythological figure or classic motif.
For the women who participate, the project can be a critical part of healing.
Charise hopes that by creating these pictures, she's helping to start a dialogue about what breast cancer survivors' bodies really look like.
And ultimately, she says, "I hope that these images help to shift the narrow perception of beauty that exists within our culture."
