Although the empirical nature of tears is a chemistry of water, proteins, minerals, hormones, antibodies and enzymes, the topography of tears is a momentary landscape, transient as the fingerprint of someone in a dream. This series is like an ephemeral atlas.
The Topography of Tears is a study of 100 tears, photographed through a standard light microscope.
This set is collected from tears of different individuals while they were experiencing different emotions and under different circumstances from elation to onions, as well as sorrow, frustration, rejection, resolution, laughing, yawning, birth and rebirth, and many more, each a tiny history.
