John Clancy zooms in on our organs, compiling more than 300 images of the human body snapped at high magnification. They look amazing--but not particularly human. At times, leafing through the book feels like paging through images of deep-sea exploration.... The deeper we go, the more abstract it gets.... At 1,250x magnification, nerve cells have the dots, swirls and seemingly random smatterings of a Jackson Pollock painting. And it's all right there, inside us.
