WIRED posted about the wonderful photography of Pascal Goet, who asks you to give insects a closer look.
Insects have themselves a PR problem. No group of animals is more reviled, feared, or distrusted, and that’s not fair. Insects may eat our crops and sting us (like that time a wasp with a particularly nasty venom made a grown man crawl into a ditch and “bawl his eyes out”), but that’s just kind of their thing.
Really, they’ve got far more personality than just full-tilt derangement. And few photographers bring out their personalities like Pascal Goet, a veteran science photojournalist based in Méré, France. For 20 years, he’s been getting up real close to capture the most beautiful species in the insect kingdom, revealing intricacies that escape the naked eye. “The inspiration behind this is to disconnect man’s repulsion for the insects and make them accept and at least, aesthetically, love them,” Goet says.
