Boyle Family, 'Skin series'. Using a method for applying the procedures they were using on the earth to the surface of the human body, they had discovered a method of chemically freezing the top layer of the epidermis and removing it in a transparent block. Then they used the actual skin like a negative, as a master in the enlarger, from which they made large prints. They called these cytograms. Click on the image to see original source.
SEM of Human Skin. The top layer of the epidermis is composed of flattened, dead skin cells that form the surface of the skin. The dead cells from this layer are continuously being shed and replaced by cells from the living epidermal layer below it (red). The lowest layer (not seen here) is the dermis. The skin is the body's largest organ, accounting for around 15% of the body's weight.
