Our Hair, Our Stories

Rohina Hoffman, fine art photographer, neurologist and author of Hair Stories (Damiani, 2019), explores the significance of women's hair through her art and interviews with women of varying ages and ethnicities.When my mother started losing her hair due to chemo, she was encouraged to get a wig. She refused, and chose to shave her head instead. Her response to anyone who expressed concern was, "Let'em stare, I'm have other things to worry about." She wore her baldness like armor. — Devin Nunes' Cat (@of_whiskers) May 22, 2019→ Catch the exhibition on view through 5/31 at Warren Alpert Medical Center of Brown University. More info here.
