Microaculpture, a unique photographic study of insects, is a groundbreaking collaboration between award-winning photographer Levon Biss and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. The museum's renowned entomology collection contains the world's oldest pinned insect specimen and items collected by pioneering Victorian explorers and biologists such as Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace. Now, for the first time, Biss's large-scale photographs of the specimens are collected in this gorgeous book. Each breathtakingly detailed photograph is comprised of approximately 8,000 individual images―a painstaking process wherein Biss lights and photographs segments of the specimen, then combines them to spectacular effect. The vivid colors, unusual features, and never-before-seen details of the insects in Microsculpture capture the true wonders of nature and science.Biographie de l'auteur :
