We previously covered the Tutu Project event in New York City, which was to be held on March 22nd. Due to a family matter, the event was postponed, and will now be held on May 3 and 4.

Last September we released our short film about photographer Bob Carey and his personal endeavor called “The Tutu Project.” Using PocketWizard technology, Bob employed remote camera triggering to take self-portraits of himself in a pink tutu. With his wife Linda undergoing chemotherapy treatments, she and her fellow patients enjoyed the photos. This led to The Tutu Project and the creation of the Carey Foundation to support women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

The series has proved incredibly popular, with media coverage from CNN, The Today Show, the BBC, and countless other media outlets. Last fall Bob photographed himself and survivors at a series of halftime events at NFL games.

PocketWizard is proud to announce it is co-sponsoring an event to celebrate the Tutu Project’s first anniversary. The event will be held at The Lab NYC, 122 West 26th Street, New York City, on Friday, May 3rd and Saturday, May 4th, 2013.

VIDEO: Bob Carey’s Tutu Project Self-Portraits

We’re very happy to share our short film featuring Bob Carey and the Tutu Project. This past year the Tutu Project has been featured in segments on CNN, The Today Show, Inside Edition, and countless other major media outlets. Few professional photographers have enjoyed the level of mainstream exposure Carey’s work has received.

A commercial photographer from Arizona with decades of experience, Carey’s wife Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer nine years ago. A self-portrait enthusiast who had previously transformed himself in several series of artistic images, Carey eventually began photographing himself in a pink tutu. Linda shared the images with her fellow patients while they were receiving treatment. Soon the Tutu Project was born, and all proceeds go to the Carey Foundation, which provides transportation, meals, and other daily needs to women undergoing breast cancer treatment. Images from the Tutu Project have been collected in the book Ballerina, published September, 2012.

Carey uses PocketWizard Plus III radios to execute his self-portraits taken on location around the United States. Stay tuned for a feature article on Carey’s career, gear, the Tutu Project, and more to be published on the PocketWizard blog.

Images and prints from the Tutu Project can be found at the Tutu Project site. Ballerina, other Tutu Project gear, and donation information can be found here. Bob Carey’s photography can be seen at his site. You can also see the video on Vimeo and YouTube.
