Bryan William Jones is a retinal neuro- scientist and photographer whose scientific work involves disorders of retinal degeneration and how those diseases affect the wiring and structure of the retina.

This image is a series of three 200 nanometer thick sections of a mouse eye through each layer of the retina, illustrating the complex nature of the over 70 types of cells that make up a mammalian eye. Each physical section has been cut with a diamond knife, thinner than the wavelength of light. Each section is probed with an engineered antibody for a single amino acid, in this case taurine, glutamine and glutamate and assigned to red, green and blue color channels respectively, generating the composite computational image.
