I have been working at the Salk Institute for the past six years or so. Beyond its science, the Salk has both breathtaking architecture and a stunning natural environment. It is absurdly common to see tour groups wander around, peering into the laboratories like us scientists are wild animals. As I am about to leave for the East Coast, I thought I would share some of the photographs I’ve taken over my time here; they range from DSLR to instagram to black and white film. The black and white was made intentionally dark; most pictures of Salk are intensely bright, highlighting the white color of the buildings. I thought it would be appropriate to show the bleakness that those of us forced to crawl through the floors-between-floors and work late nights experience.
