Insect portraits of Levon Biss

Microsculpture from Levon Biss on Vimeo.

Levon Biss is a British professional photographer who has made a series of portraits of insects. That collection, which will be displayed in a show at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History from 27 May – 30 October, 2016, is called Microsculpture.

If you click on “Explore” on the above Microsculpture link you’ll see all of the insects in the show and you can zoom in and out to see an amazing amount of detail.

He uses an incredible process: because of the extreme shallow depth of field of macro photography each image is made up of thousands of individual photographs that are layered together to make a three dimensional form.
