Los Angeles-based photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher’s “The Topography of Tears” is a microscopic study of tears emitted during a range of emotional states and physical reactions. Using a Zeiss microscope with an attached digital camera, she captures the composition of tears enclosed in glass slides, magnified between 10x and 40x. The project began during a period of personal loss when she was shedding copious amount of tears. Instead of brushing them away, she decided to look at them under the microscope. She was surprised to discover that some of the tears actually looked like aerial shots. All the water, proteins, minerals, hormones, antibodies and enzymes in the tear mimicked the rivers and fields and buildings you see while flying several thousand feet in the air.
