First, a few sobering facts about breast cancer: One in eight women will develop the disease during her lifetime, and last year, more than 200,000 new cases were diagnosed in the United States. The good news: The overall survival rate is 89 percent, and with early detection, that number is closer to 98 percent. Local photographer Tim Valentino personalizes those facts and figures with his latest exhibit, “A Touch of Pink,” featuring breast cancer survivors. By displaying two distinct black-and-white photos of each model, Valentino attempts to illustrate the range of emotions experienced while struggling with the disease. Many of the photos include a dash of pink, which has become the de facto color in breast cancer awareness efforts. Net proceeds from the exhibit will be donated to the nonprofit Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. —Sarah Kelley
