Hannah Cooper's series Chromosome 17 emerged from an interest in examining the relationship between her family and the breast cancer genetic mutation labelled BRCA1. Her work explores this topic by using a timeline of family portrait images and a mixture of alternative and digital processes to visually represent microscopic imagery of breast cancer cells and in turn their destructive effect on the individuals depicted. The work seeks to raise awareness of the genetic mutation by visualising the broken reality and loss created by the gene and the fragility of each life shown in the images.
