Scope and Contents

These works were commissioned for "The Beauty In Breathing" exhibition. They depict a young, well-endowed nude model with a stylized figure of the lungs collaged over her chest. In a comic strip like bubble, the word, "Breathe" eminates from her mouth. One of these photographs was selected for an announcement card. The drawing that is not included with the mounted four photographs depicts another image of the lungs that can be collaged onto a photograph to create a different appearance as an option. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
