yes, a little departure from weird animals to show you something tiny and beautiful.
using sand collected from beaches the world over, dr. gary greenburg meticulously sifts through and photographs delicate, colourful, and fascinating grains. the results are somewhat astonishing. each photograph takes hours to compose; dr. greenburg had to invent a new way to photograph these sand grains, and combines several images with different focal points into the finished product. it makes me think of snowflake photography – so much effort to show us the simple beauty of something tiny and overlooked.
