Twenty cancer patients were invited to receive full makeovers that included hair and makeup. They were asked to keep their eyes shut through the transformation, and sit in front of a one way mirror. A photographer prepped on the other side of that mirror when they open their eyes, and what he captures is an amazing reaction that, if only for a brief moment, takes them out of the pain and suffering that cancer brings to their lives.
