Your Liver, Blood And The Flu Look Surprisingly Pretty Under A Microscope
Through culture and the classroom, more often than not we’re trained to think of arts and sciences as two separate fields of interest and specialization. It’s people like Colin Salter who remind us that these barriers don’t have to exist, and that within the machine that is our body, beauty can be found. In his book, “Science is Beautiful: The Human Body Under the Microscope”, Salter explores the intricacies of the human form with the eye of an artist and the precision of a scientist. Using micrographs and MRI scans, Salter captures what he calls “images of elements within the body whose existence you may never have pondered but whose functions are vital and fascinating”.
