This dynamic and beautiful series by Rubén Álvarez is called Haematopoiesis, and relates to the process of formation of blood cellular components.
It’s dynamic work that feels scientific and artistic all at once. Read more about his process and personal inspiration for the project below.
“This project was inspired by my very personal experiences so I discovered the Hematopoiesis process, while I was looking for treatments for more than 15 pleomorphic adenomas that were located around my head and neck. I went through several surgeries to remove them and reconstruct my facial nerve, as well as almost thirty radiotherapy sessions to prevent these adenomas to appear again.”
This is the story of the Haematopoiesis.
