Photographer Bob Carey started The Tutu Project on a whim, but finished it with a purpose.
This photo project is simple, he takes self-portraits of himself wearing a pale pink tutu.
He began this project in 2003 after a drastic move from the West Coast to the East Coast.
Six months later, his wife Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Suddenly, this random tutu project took on a great purpose for Bob..it made them laugh.
Bob said, "Oddly enough, her cancer has taught us that life is good, dealing with it can be hard, and sometimes the very best thing — no, the only thing — we can do to face another day is to laugh at ourselves, and share a laugh with others."
He is now planning to self-publish a book of these photographs titled Ballerina..
His goal is to raise $75,000 dollars for cancer research.
