Microscopic image of a tear

Sold out
Micrograph, a photograph taken through a microscope, showing a crystalized emotional tear of sadness.

The project combines the aesthetic beauty of crystalized tears, together with the stories behind that particular genuine moment in life. This because Maurice Mikkers believes we should share our tears, because tears are stories and stories connect us on a deeper level. Everyone has their own story to share. So Maurice hereby invites you to send a tear, be they happy or unhappy.
