Photomicrography Reveals The World’s Smallest Wonders

An Oldie But Goodie


This may look like wall of vines, but it is actually the iris of an eye magnified 125 times. The blood vessels of the eye were injected with latex to make them more visible. The craziest part of this image is that is was taken in 1977! The photographer is Joseph Goren of Miami, Florida. Photomicrography may not have been as popular back then, but it was still considered an art form. The image earned Goren fifth place in that year’s Nikon competition (yes, it goes that far back).
