If you think that all tears are created equal, you’ll be surprised by how different and unique they actually are. Rose-Lynn Fisher wondered how her tears would look depending on how she felt or what feeling triggered an emotional response.
Her project entitled ‘The Topography of Tears‘ has been been featured in galleries and other websites. She has captured through photography how different tears are depending on whether we have tears of joy, sorrow, grief, or simply tears from chopping onions.
Tears of timeless reunion
Tears of hope and possibility
Tears of laughter to the point of crying
Tears of momentum
Tears of elation at a liminal moment
Basal tears (the tears that naturally lubricate our eyes)
Tears of remembrance
Tears from chopping onions
Tears of change
Tears of release
Tears of grief
Tears of ending and beginning
I never could have imagined how so different tears could be until viewing Rose-Lynn Fisher’s work. Please share this interesting view of tears under a microscope with your friends and family.
