)-- Bay area professional photographer, Robert Houser, presents Facing Chemo, a collection of images depicting the honest, unaffected emotions of people undergoing chemotherapy. Close to twenty portraits, and growing, Facing Chemo, unveils patients in a simple setting, black backdrops, unadorned, allowing for the intensity of their raw beauty, strength, fear and resolve, to push to the fore. With a local gallery opening scheduled for September 20, 2013, and a custom fine art photography book underway, the studio launched a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to raise the funds needed for the show to open and subsequently travel to cancer centers and galleries nationwide.
