2001

“Natural Beauty Farber Nudes” published, revised in 2004

Robert Farber: Art Meets Humanity

Robert Farber dedicated “Natural Beauty Farber Nudes” to a close friend named Diane Erickson who died of breast cancer.

Diane was the first model on the cover of Self Magazine. When she began her fight against the disease she was writing a monthly journal in Self called “Diane’s Diary” to educated people on breast cancer.

The book and gallery opening resulted in a partnership with The Evelyn Lauder Breast Cancer Research Foundation and 100% of the proceeds were donated to this fund.

A Personal Experience with Breast Cancer

In 1963, before I ever heard of breast cancer, my mother was diagnosed with the disease. She survived with a mastectomy.

In 2006 my brother was also diagnosed with breast cancer, He also survived with a mastectomy.

I never knew a man was susceptible too.
