microscope photography

I push the boundaries of the beautiful, from spiders’ jaws, moss leaves to codeine crystals. The beauty in this world is more intense in tiny places.

I seek the hidden world of beauty in drops of water, insects’ eyes and human hair and challenge preconceptions of beauty.

I prepare animal, vegetable and mineral for the microscope and photograph using many lighting techniques along with stacking and stitching.
