Over the past couple of years I get constantly asked “when are you going to do a book of your work”. Well I have decided to do a book to raise $2,000,000 to fight cancer. I have my work cut out but this is only 20,000 book sales, I just need less than 1% of Australia’s  population to buy a book. I’m very happy to have  OPA! Magazine with Dean Georgio and Steve Agi involved with this project. Cancer is a disease that has no discrimination to age, gender, race or religion. Everyone I have spoken to can name at least 5 people close to them who have battled with cancer, It is estimated more than 45,000 people will died from cancer in 2011/12

So the Book “In My Pants” will be made up with 30% Celebrities 40% Cancer fighters /survivors and 30% everyday people all wearing  just my 30 year old Levi 501 jeans. The first 4 photos are from a shoot I did with Tina Sarantis 2 days before her first treatment for Breast Cancer. I was extremely honoured that Tina allowed me to shoot her having hair shaved off in preparation for her treatment and allow me to use the photos in my book. I hope Vicky Papas-Vergara and I made the experience a little more pleasant. Hair, Make-up and chef shaver: Vicky Papas

The rest of the photos and a sneak peek and I have over 250 more photos to come.

I hope you will all come along and support this worthy Fundraiser MODA on May 9th with us in where the sole purpose is toraise funds to battle the statistics above which in one way or another has or will affect us all…

Dean Georgio from OPA! Magazine With some food for thought –
• Every 19 minutes, someone in Victoria is diagnosed with cancer and every hour, someone will die from it.
• One in three women and one in two men will be diagnosed with some form of cancer before the age of 75
• Cancer is the leading cause of death in Australia – more than 43,000 people are estimated to have died from cancer in 2010/11.

With this is mind, I hope you will all come along and support this worthy Fundraiser on May 9th with us in where the sole purpose is toraise funds to battle the statistics above which in one way or another has or will affect us all…

  6. Hi Peter, I cant wait to have the photo shoot with you for this amazing event. xxx And I am all ready for May the 9th to Shave my hair in front of all your guest, it will be awesome.

  7. Wow, what amazing work. Tina is soooo brave. What a beautiful/distressing moment to see. Tina is so beautiful with or without her hair.
    2 years ago this month my mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer. She had a 5cm tumor and went into urgent surgery. At 53 my beautiful mother lost all her hair and was violently ill, however with a lot of hope, strength and our belief in god, we fought together as a family and we beleived in her getting well.
    Two years on, 3 operations later and an even stronger family connection my mother is doing great and there is no sign of cancer. It was very hard for her, and for us to watch but she will be by my side on May the 9th at this wonderful event and I thank god everyday.
    Good luck Peter and I hope Wednesday night is a success. We are promoting it as much as we can on our end, Kali – Dream Cakes Cafe

    I am so touched by this Peter, my mum survived breast cancer against the odds due to an immune system disease she also suffers from, and I think you are wonderful for wanting to do something to help this worthy cause. I cannot express how much emotion I feel when I see these images, they are just fantastic, and well done to you all.

    Wow…The admiration doesn’t end!
    My sister has just recently gone through a double mastectomy, had a terribly rough time through the chemo and radiotherapy – but has thankfully pulled through. She has two gorgeous little girls and a young marriage to keep fighting for and a strong determination to rebuild her health.

    After reading this blog, I will be taking a strong interest in this amazing project of yours. And will most certainly love to buy a copy of the book too!
