Science photography seems to me to be an often overlooked area of this art form. Possibly because it is an area mostly left to the professionals and not easily accessible to amateurs. Still, it is a shame because science photography produces some of the most amazing photographs around. Just check out Lennary Nilsson’s award winning A Child Is Born portfolio, or David Doubilet’s amazing black and white seascapes and you’ll see what I’m talking about. These are photographs that not only look stunning but give an insight into parts of our world we don’t ordinarily get to see.
I find this totally fascinating, I mean did you know what bone tissue or SARS virus particles looked like? Kinda cool actually.
