Dutch photographer Maurice Mikkers wondered how tears look close up. So he tooktear samples from his friends, all harvested under different circumstances: cutting onions, eating hot peppers, looking in to a fan, crying because of sadness or happiness, and snapped every tear drop under a microscope. The results are pretty awesome.
"It would be great if one day I would be able too share this experience live with you during a local exposition," he said. "An exposition where you as a volunteer can donate a tear, a tear that would be added to the collection of tears that will travel the world." Check out the images below:
