Michael Koerner – ‘Tendrilles’

Michael Koerner’s series ‘Tendrilles’ – one of the beautiful abstract tintypes driven by a tremendous amount of pain in his family history in imagining the infinite possibilities of genetics if something could have been done differently or avoided.

The artist’s mother, Kimiko Takaki, was eleven years old on August 9, 1945, when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Due to genetic abnormalities and cancer, the tragedy of losing a beloved relative was a constant tragedy in the family.
