Rose-Lynnfisher, a photographer who has immersed herself in the terrain of  body, bones and cells, has created a way to look at tears through the lens of emotion and image. Lynnfisher magnifies tears through a microscope and reveals  their beautiful and patterned emotional terrain. Lynnfisher is in process of putting these images into a book. While in Turkey, I learned that Turkish women honor other women teachers by capturing their own tears and offering them to their teacher in a form of a ritual of gratitude.
