About this book

Microsculpture is a unique photographic study of insects in mind-blowing magnification that celebrates the wonders of nature and science. Levon Biss's photographs capture in breathtaking detail the beauty of the insect world and are printed in large-scale format to provide an unforgettable viewing experience. Each picture in Microsculpture is created from approximately 8,000 individual photographs. Segments of the specimen are lit and photographed separately, "stacked" to maintain sharp focus throughout, then combined into a single high-resolution file. The project has captured the attention of the world with features in WIRED and New Scientist.

Microsculpture exhibited at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and Xposure 2016 International Photography Festival in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. It has been viewed by over half a million people, and more exhibition plans are in the works.

The entomology collection has significant cultural and historical value, containing the world's oldest pinned insect specimen and many thousands of insects collected by pioneering Victorian explorers and biologists such as Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace.
