The Renaissance of Heather.
Washington DC-based portrait photographer Jonathan Thorpe captures an incredible image of his friend and model Heather Byrd, in which the young woman (who also happens to be a cancer patient) is at the center of a thought-provoking recreation of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. Standing in as the Goddess of Love and Beauty, Byrd is in the nude, exposing a deep sense of vulnerability amidst a cold, unforgiving hospital-esque environment.  “Instead of the beauty of the forest and water behind her, it would be replaced with the coldness and drab colors of an old hospital room and bed. Instead of a woman draping Venus in beautiful cloth, a nurse would be covering her with a hospital gown. Instead of the two wrapped in love to her side, two doctors would be there, one with oxygen mask, the other with syringes and a chart. And finally, instead of her being presented on a shell where she is born, she would be standing on a pile of her own clothes, and wig.”
Jonathan Thorpe

This is your brain making memories
Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have captured how our brain makes memories on video.
Here you will find fantasy, imagination and madness;
Anatomy, biology, and medicine;
Hopes, dreams, and thoughts;
Ice, clouds and shadows;
Lost things, broken things
and things I hold dear.
