Some say a picture is worth a thousand words; and they would be right looking at images of a burly grown man posing “Where’s Waldo” style around the world in a pink tutu.
Professional photographer and newfound tutu model, Bob Carey, started the Tutu Project in an effort to raise funds - Carey’s goal is to raise $75,000 - for breast cancer organizations.
Inspired by his wife Linda’s nine-year struggle in overcoming the disease, Carey learned that the best way to get through such hardships was to laugh. Carey’s images have been compiled into an independently published book, Ballerina, in addition to custom T-shirts, which can be purchased via the Tutu Project website.  [Source: The Tutu Project]
