The Tutu Project…
A middle-aged, average-bodied man. A kind man, a loving husband, whose wife has terminal cancer. A man who had a vision for gorgeous, sweeping, breathtaking photographs punctuated by something we don’t usually see—a middle-aged man in a pink tutu.
The Today Show profiled Bob Carey, his project, and the foundation created from this project.
The thing that makes this story work so well for me is that he isn’t making fun of his body. Too often men’s bodies are used as a joke… But he isn’t using his body as a joke, he’s using it more as a knowing wink. A nod toward the husbands and partners of those with Cancer. They aren’t superhuman, they are average guys living big, scary, beautiful lives.
And he makes his wife smile.
Good man, Bob.
