Vanaria says in the artist's statement for this particular body of work "You are told during preparatory meetings with your oncologist that everyone’s reaction is different to chemotherapy. These photographs are my medical records of this treatment. They are the hard facts, vague impressions and everything in between that occurred to me since starting and now having completed this journey."

The exhibition was juried by Richard Klein, artist, curator, writer and exhibitions director of The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT.
