Contests in the world of photography are always interesting, because thanks to them we get the opportunity to see truly professional, high-quality and creative pictures. And the competition Small Worldheld annually by the company Nikon, allows you to see also what in ordinary life we are not at all able to see. We present to your attention the best works of photographic art of 2010, made with a microscope.
The Nikon Small World Competition has been held since 1974, and anyone can take part in it. The subject of the images is not limited, and the authors are also free to choose the technique of microphotography. The winners are selected by an authoritative jury composed of renowned experts in photography and microphotography. But in order to participate in the competition, it is not at all necessary to be a professional: over the long history of Small World, the works of ordinary amateurs have been repeatedly recognized as the best.
According to the organizers of the competition, microphotography is a technical document of great importance for the development of science and industries. However, a good photomicrograph is not just a picture taken under a microscope, but also "a work whose structure, color, composition and content are an object of beauty, open to several levels of understanding and appreciation."
In 2010, the winner was Jonas King, who submitted a 100-fold enlargement of a mosquito's heart. Second place went to Dr. Hideo Otsuna for his 5-day-old zebrafish head. The third prize went to Oliver Braubach, who photographed the olfactory bulbs of the same zebrafish.
If you are interested in the world of microphotography, then be sure to visit site competition. Here you will see the photos that took the top 20 this year, images of the rest of the contestants, as well as an archive of photos from previous years.
A talented person is talented in everything. And he's not afraid to push beyond possibilities that ordinary people won't even see. This is what director Elohim Sanchez did. Making films of his broad personality was not enough - and he discovered the talent of an artist. And he didn't just discover: his abstract paintings are a bold attempt to create his own "ideal" material world
In our review, we have collected an incredible series of photographs that reveal an amazing world “under the microscope”, where the most ordinary things, such as flowers and food, take on a different image. When you look at the pictures, you get the feeling that fabulous worlds and unknown spaces come to life: plants become mystical creatures, and banal toasts, granulated sugar or coffee - magnificent unearthly landscapes
Nowadays, most people start taking photographs during their school years. Many already think of themselves as a great photographer at the age of 15. Gilbert Garcin became one when he turned 70. Instead of being a venerable retired grandfather, he created in his photographs a small world full of symbols and allusions
A painting can tell a million stories. With every click of the camera and the captured image, we tell stories and capture moments that will continue to live on in the photo. The miracles of microphotography is a new and unique method that opens the way for us to get acquainted with hitherto unknown microscopic organisms
