As we have seen in the short life of my little blog, histology of fatal diseases can look as beautiful as a Van Gogh, as vibrant as a Matisse or as startlingly abstract as a Pollock. The images above are a sample of histology images taken by the medical scientists who work with devastatingly dazzling tissue biopsies and samples at John Hopkins’ School of Medicine.
This is histology forcing us to confront the fascinating beauty of some of the most frightening pathological diagnoses that appear so destructively beautiful - hidden within us.
These images are published alongside many more in a book entitled “Hidden Beauty: exploring the aesthetics of medical science” and can be seen at the book’s site.
