In collaboration with the Brighton and Sussex Medical School anatomy department, during 2009 I undertook a photographical exploration of the internal body landscape.

 

The abstract macro images reveal the interplay of light and colour through different body tissues and highlight the complexity and fragility of our bodies. 

Permission for the display of images from the project was granted by the HTA (Human Tissue Authority).

A hole in the intercostal muscles between the ribs allows light to stream through.
