HIV protrudes from a pee pot

MEMORIALISING DISEASE celebrates pioneering individuals who lead the way in medical science, sometimes without even realising the impact of their work.

Ceramic sculptures of  deadly viruses or bacteria are taken back to places of significance in the history of developing vaccines and photographed there.

 

Thank you to the immunologist, Matthew Helbert, who made sure I knew my viruses from my bacteria, and to Helen Elias for her inspiration.
