What worlds exist inside the human head... and, when we put them together, what limits are there to the potential accomplishments of our species? A CT scan doesn't show thoughts and promise, though. It doesn't show love and fear and wisdom or anger. It shows tissue and connections. What this technician reads in the images- unknowable abstractions to a layperson- may reveal a future of tragedy or triumph. What he sees this moment may very well change someone's life. And, he does this every day.
I loved how the key subject, the head, is in the shadows with the contours lit up in this black and white composition, and the underlying woven implication of brains understanding itself through science. Lovely depiction of how science is helping us not only study the world but also our human body!!
