Looking At Tears Under A Microscope Reveals Something Shocking

It turns out, not all tears are the same. Artist Rose-Lynn Fisher discovered this after taking a microscope to her tears and examining and documenting the differences between them.

“The Project began in a period of personal change, loss, and copious tears. One day I wondered if my tears of grief would look any different from my tears of happiness.” Fisher writes on her website.

It turns out, the tears our bodies produce vary greatly in composition and in microscopic appearance depending on what is causing them. The photographs that Fisher has captured demonstrate the variants in tears in beautiful fashion. From tears of joy to onion tears, each tear tells a different story that says something different about the human experience. Fisher calls the project, “The Topography of Tears.”
