Overview

A new and astonishing world has opened up before our eyes - the inside of the human body. Exciting state-of-the-art imaging techniques now bring us this extraordinary and awe-inspiring interior landscape, revealing that the inside of the body is as beautiful as the outside - and a thousand times more complex and fascinating. This is the first book to survey and celebrate in more than 100 mesmerizing full-color images this hitherto unseen world, a world in which enormously magnified images of red blood cells seem to zoom like space capsules into dark tunnels and high-tech images of bone tissue bring to mind associations with surrealist art.

"...includes more than 100 full-color magnified images from MRI and other imaging systems of such bodily interiors as red blood cells and bone tissue...masterworks of a new and compelling photographic art."
