Description of Pictures: A description of the "A Healthy Heart" exhibit from http://nmhm.washingtondc.museum/news/healthyheart.html :
The National Museum of Health and Medicine has opened the exhibit "A Healthy Heart,” based on a book called, “The Invision Guide to a Healthy Heart,” by Alexander Tsiaras. The exhibit, which examines human anatomy for both the scientific and lay communities, is the third at the museum that is based on a book by Tsiaras.
Tsiaras believes that “there is a great educational need in this county for public health education. Many Americans have no idea why their bodies are failing them or what they can do to make a positive change in their health.” The book is an educational tool to assist people in understanding what is inside their bodies, how the cardiovascular system works and what they can do to keep it healthy.
By using full body scans, ultra powerful microscopes, and molecular modeling tools, Tsiaras accentuates the body’s intricately constructed cardiovascular network and isolates the heart in a way that has never been seen before. The images offer unparalleled views of the heart as it develops in a fetus and grows into a complex network of arteries and veins, the heart as it becomes infected with disease and the heart as an essential organ to the rest of the body.
“Alexander Tsiaris and his group translate complex data- particularly medical images- and shape them into beautiful, approachable and easy-to-understand visual narratives,” said Mehment Oz, Vice Chairman of the Department of Surgery, at New York- Presbyterian Columbia Hospital.
Tsiaras, an internationally recognized photojournalist, artist, and writer, is president and CEO of Anatomical Travelogue, Inc. of New York, NY. He is the author of “From Conception to Birth: A Life Unfolds," and “The Architecture and Design of Man and Woman: The Marvel of the Human Body, Revealed.”
At the age of 19, Tsiaras authored his first book, "Death Rituals of Rural Greece." He later authored "Body ...More...

2008 photos: Equipment this year: I was using three cameras -- the Fuji S9000 and the Canon Rebel Xti from last year, and a new camera, the Fuji S100fs. The first two cameras had their pluses and minuses and I really didn't have a single camera that I thought I could use for just about everything. But I loved the S100fs and used it almost exclusively this year.
Trips this year: (1) Civil War Preservation Trust annual conference in Springfield, Missouri , (2) a week in New York, (3) a week in San Diego for the Comic-Con, (4) a driving trip to St. Louis, and (5) a visit to dad and Dixie's in Asheville, North Carolina.
Ego strokes: A picture I'd taken last year during a Friends of the Homeless event was published in USA Today with a photo credit and everything! I became a volunteer photographer with the AFI/Silver theater.
Number of photos taken this year: 330,000.
