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.

's work blends landscape painting with documentary realism, allowing it to move beyond mere description to something greater. Shibata's photographs show the extent of our creative (and destructive) powers, allowing us to draw our own conclusions about the impact humanity has had on the world.
Collaborative artists(in Toronto) and Paul Collins (in Paris) paint over parts of each other's photographs using kitschy styles of old-fashioned advertising illustration (and other motifs) to create pleasantly jarring juxtapositions.
Employing chiaroscuro lighting and the traditional palette of landscape paintings—ochre, green, blue—these vibrant photographs delve into the opulence and mystery of the jungle.
Close-cropped, delicate details of the richly textured surfaces and skin of living animals — meditations on the beauty of nature.
