Scars Are Beautiful

Destroying the stigma of open heart surgery scars


Our mission is two fold: destroy the stigma behind scars and spread awareness for Congenital Heart Disease.  Scars Are Beautiful is a collection of photographs of individuals, young and old, with open heart surgery scars.

People bearing their scars and documenting them through photography help with the fight against society's standard of beauty.

These photos transcend the scar and disease and let us see into the window of one of the most intimate sides of humanity.
