Eric Hayes took this self-portrait only minutes before undergoing radial prostatectomy at a hospital in Halifax. He documented the entire two-day process with his very own camera. For Eric, this was a way to face his fears about the surgery. He says, "It was a keen moment of truth, of awareness, of trust and destiny, not unlike a paratrooper just before a parachute jump. Who knew what might happen next. My fate was in the hands of the urologist and his team. My job at this point was to relax and let go."
