‘If only for a second’, Unusual Cancer Patient Makeovers

Ariane Brigitte Fabienne Hayat Jeannine Katy Noella Patrick

20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience.
They were invited to a studio. Their hair and makeup were completely redone.
During the transformation, they were asked to keep their eyes shut.
A photographer then immortalized the moment they opened their eyes.
This discovery allowed them to forget their illness, IF ONLY FOR A SECOND.


This 60 pages book contains the photographs by Vincent Dixon
of the 20 participants of “If only for a second”.
Every photo is followed by a caption, the date and the time the photo was taken
and most importantly, the exact second when the person forgot about their disease.
Going through this book, the reader is carried away by laughter,
giggles and carefree faces. Readers will even be surprised to have on their own faces… a smile.
This is the heart of the idea of the “If only for a second ” project, to spread smiles and happiness.
