Molecular photography captures a world invisible to the naked eye.
It  opens the mysteries to molecules and cells. Art based on reality, the images tell a story or act as a portrait. 
They may even communicate scientific information visually so it is more easily understood.
John Naisbitt  ~ High Tech, High Touch: Technology and Our Search for Meaning

Sondra Barrett, PhD first, a skeptical scientist and cancer researcher at the University of California Medical School slowly changed her beliefs and understanding of our cells and molecules to seeing ourselves as more than biology and what is measurable. She also had her mind expanded by the microscope – first seeing living human cells and then peering into the magic of our molecules.  The world of wine captured her attention in 1982 when she was artist in residence for Sterling Vineyards in Napa.  Ever since, she has been exploring the expressions of wine and their story of life, death and temperament.  Her Shaping Taste Presentations and compelling photomicrographs of wine will open your mind as well.
