Art

Pollen, seeds and fruit under the microscope

If you’re a photographer and you like to get really, really close to things we may have found you someone new to aspire to. British professor and photographer Rob Kesseler is taking macro to a whole new level with his latest series of photographs that look at nature under a microscope.

The specimens are coated in a fine layer of gold and then photographed under the microscope, before being digitally manipulated to amplify clarity and intricacy. The final results are pollen, seeds and fruit as you’ve never seen them before – harmoniously bridging the gap between art and science.
