Fort Lauderdale photographer and art gallery owner Michael Colanero started a paint breast cancer awareness effort, teaming up with body paint artists Keegan Hitchcock and Luci Ungerbuehler to create the images, and many more. The models are all breast cancer survivors, he said, whose bodies are painted. Colanero photographs them, adding artistic touches to the photos afterward for the Breast Cancer Awareness Body Painting Project (BCABPP). They and the cancer survivors, some of whom are local, are upset that Facebook has taken down some of the photos as violations of the nudity/pornography rules.
