Contemporary artist and activist Alexsandro Palombo has re-imaged Disney Princesses as breast cancer survivors, with the hope of raising awareness.

The project entitled 'Survivor' is designed to be a powerful reflection of the disease, mastectomy and it's effects.

The Italian artist also hopes the shocking images will challenge our ideas of beauty, femininity and acceptance.
