About the Book
Collection of images from Alexander Heilner's "Microbes" series of digital photographs.
I am a practicing visual artist, working in photography, video, digital imaging, installation, lighting design, and sculpture. I hold a full-time faculty position at MICA - The Maryland Institute College of Art - in Baltimore, where I teach in the photography department. I work selectively in photojournalism and commercial photography as well, taking on projects that have a particular interest for me. I travel extensively, and especially seek projects that take me to places I've never before visited or photographed. Most of my photography is landscape based. I'm obsessed with the relationship between artificial and natural elements within the landscape, and elsewhere. Recently, I've been doing a lot of aerial photography; looking at the marks we unwittingly paint across the earth's surface.
