Rose Lynn Fisher . The Topography of Tears
It’s a period of changes in my life, something is mutating from the inside and all my old habits are evolving in new directions. In the last period my attention is totally captured by new topics, from food to books, from movies and documentaries to brand-new sensations. It’s a weird moment for me because I’m in the middle of a big transformation that started two years ago from food, when you are in the middle of something between two realities, the old one and the new one, you are a little bit confused of what might happen and how things could develop, the uncontrolled situations are always scaring somehow.
Tears come from emotions and everyone has experienced several times in its life a very deep crying. I found this amazing research of an artist who took some pics of tears under different emotions and I found this work really overwhelming. How much emotions can shape our life since they can shape even some drops of tears? And how these geometries are connected with our deepest self?

It’s a period of changes in my life, something is mutating from the inside and all my old habits are evolving in new directions. In the last period my attention is totally captured by new topics, from food to books, from movies and documentaries to brand-new dimensions. It’s a weird moment because I’m in the middle of a big transformation that started two years ago when I became vegeterian. When you are in the middle of something between two realities, the old one and the new one, you are somehow confused of what will appear in the flow of changes and how things might develop, the unexpected situations are often scaring.

Tears come from emotions and everyone has experienced several times in its life an endless crying. I found this amazing research of Rose Lynn Fisher, a photographer who took some photos of tears under different emotions and I found this work really overwhelming. How much emotions can shape our life since that they can shape even some drops of tears? And how these geometries are connected with our deepest self?

The Topography of Tears

The Topography of Tears is a study of 100 tears photographed through a standard light microscope. The project began in a period of personal change, loss, and copious tears. One day I wondered if my tears of grief would look any different from my tears of happiness – and I set out to explore them up close. Years later, this series comprises a wide range of my own and others’ tears, from elation to onions, as well as sorrow, frustration, rejection, resolution, laughing, yawning, birth and rebirth, and many more, each a tiny history.

The random compositions I find in magnified tears often evoke a sense of place, like aerial views of emotional terrain. Although the empirical nature of tears is a chemistry of water, proteins, minerals, hormones, antibodies and enzymes, the topography of tears is a momentary landscape, transient as the fingerprint of someone in a dream. This series ls like an ephemeral atlas.”
