Embryonic Landscapes is Ariel Ruiz i Altabas surprising, intelligent and deeply moving photographic collection produced over the last fifteen years of his career as a scientist and artist. In an era when the secrets of the human genome are beginning to be unraveled, Embryonic Landscapes presents images that reveal morphologies and patterns of gene expression in embryos of species that share common developmental mechanisms with man, making of this work an introspective exploration of our very essence. But far from being scientific documents, the images shown here were composed for their aesthetic value. Embryonic Landscapes also presents original essays by active scientists, painters, photographers, writers and philosophers that address questions concerning the photographs themselves, the similarities between art and science, the metaphors and realities of the photographic image, the individuality of the artist versus the anonymity of the scientist, and the poetry of embryogenesis. Thus, this book not only represents an inquiry about our nature but also about our thought., Embryonic Landscapes is Ariel Ruiz i Altabas surprising, intelligent and deeply moving photographic collection produced over the last fifteen years of his career as a scientist and artist.
