Microscopic Photos Find The Beauty In Deadly Diseases [Pics]

Microscopic Photos Find The Beauty In Deadly Diseases [Pics]

New book artistically encourages people to get to know about medical conditions.

Lara Piras

Hidden Beauty: Exploring The Aesthetics Of Medical Science by Norman Barker and Christine Lacobuzio-Donahue at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine displays 113 blown-up images of deadly diseases under microscopes.

HB4

The images portray viruses such as hepatitis B, bone disease osteoporosis and cirrhosis of the liver in an extraordinarily and unexpectedly beautiful way. The diseases were captured by using various methods such as karyotyping, MRI and scanning electron microscopy.

HB3

The authors specialize in the study of art as applied to medicine, and hope that the images will make people more aware of the featured diseases and how they affect the body.

Hidden Beauty: Exploring The Aesthetics Of Medical Science is available to buy from the authors’ website here.
