Join us Sunday, May 7th at 2:00pm for a Discussion & Book Signing with photographer ROSE-LYNN FISHER for her new book "The Topography of Tears".


Book Description:

Does a tear shed while chopping onions look different from a tear of happiness? In this powerful collection of images, Rose-Lynn Fisher, an award-winning photographer trains her optical microscope and camera on her own tears and those of men, women, and children, released in moments of grief, pain, gratitude, and joy, and captured upon glass slides.

These duotone photographs reveal the beauty of recurring patterns in nature and present evocative, crystalline imagery for contemplation. Underscored by poetic captions, they translate the mysterious act of crying into an atlas mapping the structure and magnificence of our interior lives.
