Insect Wings (2003–2008)

or little bangs pretending to be big

Photography can reveal what the human eye can’t see. In these picture special lenses were used to magnify details of insect wings. The lighting magnifies them a second time and is a lure into a further dimension.

The print size is 40 x 60 centimetres (16 x 24 inches).
