Aniela McGuinness, a 32-year-old actress from Hollywood, Florida, decided to deal with her breast cancer with a photoshoot. Titled “My Breast Choice,” McGuinness photographed herself as Rosie the Riveter prior to her operation and the Bride of Frankenstein after. She learned she had cancer just three days before a planned appointment to schedule a preventative mastectomy; McGuinness had lost her mother to ovarian cancer on July 5th, 2013.
This project explores “the impact Breast Cancer, a double mastectomy, and chemo can have on a woman’s body & soul and uses humor & honesty to go beyond just surviving,” explains McGuinness. “Mainly, I needed something to focus on while I went through this, a place to release my creativity and feel useful. My Breast Choice gave me that.”
