We often miss the details, the tiny scars that cover all organisms, showing that we are alive and that we heal.
I am a biologist, and my work is a study of the city as a living being. I image the scar tissue, the remodeling, the development of the city by constant renewal. Years of capturing photographs of stressed cells under a microscope taught me how to extract the signs of life without augmentation, and here I use those same techniques to help direct the observer.
This collection shows the evolving beauty of my home and the cities I visit worldwide. Humans, weather, oxidation, microbes, and more all leave their marks for us to witness as self-aware pieces of this organism. I invite you to join me in this loving observation of our own resilience.
