This is why has a great post on the art of photomicrography.
For our #SeeTheUnseen campaign in which we are giving away four 60” Quattron Pro TVs, we met up with award-winning photomicrographer, David Maitland, who we commissioned to create images for the competition. We also paid a visit to his home-cum-laboratory in Norfolk to learn more about the process of photomicrography. Below is a video in which Maitland explains how to take Vitamin C and create an image of it at the crystalline level to reveal its hidden, coruscating beauty.
Visit the site to read the full interview with David Maitland and to see more of his beautiful images.
