Tiny world

We all know very best that the world is really big and complex, right? However, I am about to introduce you to a completely unknown micro-world. Thanks to Igor Siwanowicz’s work, a scientist and photographer who captures his subjects in extreme close-up.

Emperor Caterpillar

The photos are made with a confocal laser-scanning microscope capable of “seeing” vast amounts of detail beyond what you might capture with a traditional lens-based microscope.

When Igor was asked about his preference for shooting tiny creatures, he explained: “I’m sure that landscape, bird and human models photographers are never asked to explain their choice of subject matter. In other words, taking pictures of, say, boobies doesn’t require elucidation. I do like taking portraits of small animals from their perspective. They are foreign, otherworldly looking creatures – the closer you get to them, the stronger the effect. See, insects have those totally alien, Gigeresque forms that I find somehow fascinating.” From http://www.pxleyes.com/blog/2010/10/mindblowing-macro-photography-from-the-micro-cosmos-by-blepharopsis-with-exclusive-interview/.





As seen above, these microscopic images of diving beetles reveals the extraordinary complexity of this aquatic insect’s tiny appendage – image taken from http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2016/10/insect-microscopy-igor-siwanowicz/.
