These wonderfully creepy and Alien-esque microscope photographs of insects, rocks, snowflakes, cells, plants and critters sparked our art buttons. We are just junkies for any science related art or microscopic photography and this collection is packed with one excellent image after another. Presented by Nikon - it is the 2012 Photomicrography Competition (LINK) and they have published the winners. There are 115 of these gorgeous wonders – some science fiction monsters, some neon pschedelic abstractions and some other-worldly landscapes. All worth taking a prolonged trip through! Compelling, fascinating and beautiful.
Small World is regarded as the leading forum for showcasing the beauty and complexity of life as seen through the light microscope. The competition is open to anyone with an interest in microscopy and photography. The video competition, entitled Small World In Motion encompasses any movie or digital time-lapse photography taken through the microscope.
