Hair Stories

Karin Stack produced "Hair Stories" after  being diagnosed with cancer in 1998. From the chaotic realm of illness and uncertainty, she produced a post-chemotherapy chronicle of hair growth through sequential photos. Not without humor, these life-size photographic self-portraits follow her progress from bald to hairy. Using the ordered language of minimalism and scientific documentation, Karin examines the steady resumption of natural processes and the surprise of new hair growth.
