Gussak invasion


Lisa Gussak

About the artist:

Lisa Gussak is a primary-care doctor who has been practicing for nearly twenty years. Over the past few years, she has become increasingly interested in photography. She is drawn to the natural world, where she finds patterns and colors, and is particularly interested in contextual shifts and size distortions.

About the artwork:

"Patients often speak about their feelings of invasion, either by an illness or by a feeling, and fearing the loss of control. With my macro lens, I took this image of a small patch of moss and heard my patients' voices in my head."
