Photographing a Moment of Carefreeness

The Mimi-Foundation with Leo Burnett France gave the gift of carefreeness, "Ne Serait-ce Qu'une Seconde" (If Only For One Second), to 20 cancer patients. They accomplished this by applying hair and make-up while the subjects kept their eyes closed. They were then placed in front of a one-way mirror, where photographer Vincent Dixon waited to capture their reactions as they opened their eyes.
