I am a visual artist, and I work as an Ophthalmic Photographer, photographing retinal blood vessels. Especially in this project, my artwork has been influenced by what I do and see at my medical job.
My project Florafaunal Angiography is about combining the anatomical and aesthetic aspects of seeing. Each photograph is layered with an image of retinal blood vessels. The work becomes about the visual patterns and interactions that form between the images of blood vessels and nature's flora and fauna.

A poetic book composed of all photos and no text other than its koan-like title. People who “kill time” flipping back and forth through the pages will be rewarded perhaps with playful new connections and lingering meditations.
The two winning photographers will be featured in a traveling exhibition, and will get support to publish their first monographs.
