What's This?

Igor Siwanowicz a.k.a. Blepharopsis is a talented 40-year-old Polish macro photographer and scientist, who uses photography and fluorescence microscopy to capture his subjects in extreme close-up. Igor Siwanowicz is also a neurobiologist with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Farm Research Campus, who was born in Krakow to a pair of biologists. Siwanowicz captures the striking complexity of insects using a laser-scanning microscope at his home studio in Munich, Germany.

“I’ve found the perfect marriage of art and science,” Igor says. “So many people think the beauty of nature is wasted on scientists. But, it’s all so beautiful at any scale.”
