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.

composes multiple photographs to establish visual paths that form displaced narratives, questions, juxtapositions and more lies. The algebraic numbering on the images is a forceful and assertive element that emphasizes an individual perspective that may or may not have meaning.
When you delete images from your digital camera the files are lost forever, not so with film — the mistakes, wrong decisions or bad memories continue to exist somewhere — maybe even gaining a second life in a stranger's collection of discarded photos found by chance or other ways.
