Microsculpture : Portraits of Insects
Microsculpture is a unique photographic study of insects in mind-blowing magnification that celebrates the wonders of nature and science. Levon Biss's photographs capture in breathtaking detail the beauty of the insect world and are printed in large-scale format to provide an unforgettable viewing experience. Each picture in Microsculpture is created from approximately 8,000 individual photographs.
Segments of the specimen are lit and photographed separately, "stacked" to maintain sharp focus throughout, then combined into a single high-resolution file. The project has captured the attention of the world with features in WIRED and New Scientist. Microsculpture exhibited at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and Xposure 2016 International Photography Festival in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
