From July 1st to July 9th, there will be a special photographic exhibition by the renowned ROBERT FARBER and dedicated to the 2018 IBCPC Festival participants.
Farber’s sensitive portrayal of the female form has resulted in 25 years of continued commissions to help in the awareness of Breast Cancer.
Farber writes, “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, and he also survived by having a mastectomy. I never knew a man was susceptible too.”
Farber’s photographs have been published in virtually every form. He has exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, and lectured at the Smithsonian Institute, The George Eastman House, as well as universities and professional groups throughout the United States, Japan, Australia and Europe.
In addition to his photography, Robert Farber’s work encompasses major campaigns for fashion, beauty and advertising, as well as TV and film. A documentary highlighting Farber’s life and career is currently in development for PBS.
