Faces Unfading shows women affected by alopecia, an illness causing hair loss of varying degrees. Neither cause nor any promising cure for this condition are known. Although not affecting the physical health, hair loss often implies a severe psychological shock. Losing one's hair often seems to be losing one's identity. Identity however does not disappear but transforms itself and changes its dress. Some choose to wear a wig, others at some point prefer not to disguise their hair loss anymore. The portraits depict women who have taken off their wig, some for the first time for the photograph to be taken.
