Scars are a sign of strength and tell stories about the person that they are present on; they make a person unique and should be celebrated, not hidden.
The subjects within this publication physically 'highlight' their own scars, to combat their mental attitude towards them, and the act of usually hiding them from others. The shapes of the scars are embossed onto 300 gsm cardstock, which has a skin like texture that gives them a human feel. The neon band holding the publication together acts like a medical stitch, keeping the pages together and in-tact.
I hope that the reader of this publication will be encouraged to be proud of their own scars through the confidence and vulnerability of others.
