Art Meets Humanity

25 Years
Breast Cancer Awareness

Robert Farber

Farber’s sensitive portrayal of the female form has resulted in 25 years of continued commissions to help in the awareness of Breast Cancer.

This has resulted in numerous projects to raise money to fight this disease.

The following is a timeline of his commissions.


Commissioned to photograph cover for Newsweek on Breast Cancer.

Books and Exhibitions

Farber’s artistic approach for Newsweek resulted in a number of images which were later published in his book "Natural Beauty Farber Nudes", and were also released in gallery editions.


Natural Beauty Farber Nudes published, revised in 2004

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 survied with a mastectomy.

I never knew a man was susceptible too.
