Much has been done in contemporary times to bring awareness and possibly a cure for breast cancer. Organizations, campaigns, marathons, research, and survivor groups all point to a big pink ribbon. But is breast cancer, a disease that afflicts millions and attacks the very essence of being a woman, a recent phenomenon? Not according to Reflections of the Breast, an extraordinary book documenting the research and collaboration between Tanya Bastianich Manuali, Ph.D. and Dr. Francis Arena. This dreadful disease is as old as our history. Reflections of the Breast uses art to document the existence of breast cancer through the ages; each image evokes the society and medicine of its time.
