Ways of Knowing
Fascinated by the scientists who are dedicated to improving the pedestrian aspects of life, the photographer captures these anonymous heroes hidden from the world in their repetitive experiments. Their work is likened to that of Artists, with a reliance on funding and benefactors, and the potential futility and invisibility of the end result. Yet the message is of a beautiful futility, made possible only when man has the freedom and tenacity to accept the uncertainty of their success.
