Raising Positive Awareness of CMN on a Global Scale!

Raising Positive Awareness of CMN on a Global Scale!

Caring Matters Now charity is working in partnership with the world-renowned photographer Brock Elbank, who is best known for his recent series ‘Freckles’ which appeared in media outlets worldwide.  As part of the ‘Freckles’ series, Brock photographed a young lady from Barcelona who has CMN (Congenital Melanocytic Naevus) and as a result, Brock Elbank felt compelled to reach out and work in partnership with Caring Matters Now to raise awareness of the condition on a global scale.  You can view a collection of Brock’s images here.

Our aim is to create a series of stunning and positive images featuring individuals who are affected by CMN.  This series of images will give a clear message to the world; to love the skin you are in!

Caring Matters Now and Brock Elbank are in the process of seeking 24 individuals to participate in this very exciting project.  The series will include a wide range of different people with contrasting looks, all ages, both male and female.  The only criteria is the CMN must be untreated and situated on the upper part of the body.  

If you meet the criteria stated above and you would like to be considered as a potential participant, please complete the online registration form below. You must include a recent colour photograph of the person with CMN in daylight, without makeup and without Instagram filters. For participants under the age of 18 years, please include the name of the parent / carer responsible for the minor.

The deadline to register your interest is Friday 28th July.  Please note all photographs sent are for reference only, not for publication.

If you require any further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact Jodi Whitehouse.
