1998 Photo Contest, Science & Technology, Honorable mention

Alexander Tsiaras


01 January, 1997

Just a few years after Joseph Paul Jernigan's death sentence had been carried out, he started an electronic afterlife. The body he donated to science has been quartered, sliced and digitized for pictures like these. Jernigan's is the first human body to have been entirely translated into electronic data using the latest imaging technology, so that its multiple layers can be studied at any angle.
