You may have noticed posting at The Intersection has slowed down a bit this week. CM and I are both moving, writing, and traveling constantly right now, but our blog will return to normal soon. In the meantime, I’m working hard at finishing my next book, tentatively titled The Science of Kissing.
Among edits and re-writes, I’ve collected a series of photographs to include throughout the manuscript. A terrific mix of scientists have provided cool and unusual images from various machines and places. I’ve also got some incredible shots from professional photographers.
Now I’m interested to find out whether readers might be able to contribute… You’ve been immensely helpful in the past and I especially like the opportunity to bring our audience on the journey of composition. When I requested help in June, the result was well over 1000 responses to the kissing photo survey. In fact, I finally had to take the images down when emails continued pouring in long after the corresponding experiment at NYU! I also greatly appreciate the help of my awesome volunteers from the summer.
So with that, a special invitation to all photographers, amateur or otherwise:
Have you ever taken a picture of bears nuzzling in the field or kissing fish? How about a provocative pair of human subjects? (With their permission!) Are you interested in having an image credited to you in a science book debuting next Fall? If you’re a photographer with intriguing pictures of kissing and cuddling [no higher than PG-13 content please], email me before September 14 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
