An unseen world from Marek Mis

Biologist and micrographic photographer Marek Mis took his first micrograph in 1980 on black and white film, borrowing a friend’s camera but it was not until 2009, when he bought his first digital camera that he rediscovered the technique and set out to eventually master it. Marek’s work has won many awards and he comments of his approach and methods; “Lately I favour a mixed technique which combines polarized light and dark field. With living subjects, apart from standard, familiar shots I also try to take such micrographs which show the microorganisms with a piece of their natural habitat. These types of micrographs are quite difficult to achieve but ultimately are very impressive and give a lot of satisfaction.” See the slideshow.
