Microsculpture presents the insect collection of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History like never before. The result of a collaboration between the Museum and photographer Levon Biss, this series of beautifully-lit, high magnification portraits captures the microscopic form of a large variety of insects in striking large-format and high-resolution detail - each image is made of 8000 individual photographs. On show in the main court of the Museum, surrounded by stunning Neo-Gothic architecture, the largest of Levon’s Microsculpture photographic prints measure up to three metres across and envelop the visitor. Seen alongside the tiny insect specimens themselves, this huge transformation of scale offers a unique, transformative viewing experience.
Levon’s work will be on view at the museum from 27 May - 30 October. For more information, please visit: microsculpture.net
