About the art in this issue:

Sherri Damlo has been a professional medical editor for nearly a decade. Currently, she runs Damlo Edits, a small editing business, and is the medical copy editor for Cancer Control. She became interested in photography as a hobby when she moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2008. Ever since she was a young girl she has always had her nose pointed toward the ground to discover the specimens of nature that many people tend to overlook. Her collection in this issue reflects this same ecological obsession, including photographs of fungi, gastropods, and insects. She also is intrigued about the way in which nature reclaims objects, so she has always been attracted to ruins and places lost
to time. Sherri loves to travel, and she never leaves home without her camera. More of her work can be seen at,, and on the stock image site, Getty Images.
