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.

The work becomes about the visual patterns and interactions that form between the images of blood vessels and nature's flora and fauna.
