Bacteria series

This is a set of three etchings I did in March. Each one is a different microscopic image of bacteria - cholera, plague, and pneumonia - made up of bodies. Bacteria are far, far older than humans in evolutionary terms. We're relative babies. These etchings show the human species tangled up with illnesses from our short history.
