Had a 24 hour stopover in Kathmandu, Nepal, where I visited the Pashupatinath Hindu Temple. The temple is popular with tourists, and the resident priests have become experts at ‘casually’ positioning themselves in oh-so-photographical arrangements. They then collect donations in exchange for ‘authentic’ photographs. Motives aside, they do a beautiful job, and the scenes they create seem worthy of a Hollywood art director.

Photographers have been exposing negatives to corrosive chemicals for ages, but as far we know, Seung-Hwan Oh is the first to use live bacteria in his experiments.

Using homegrown cultures that feed on the light-sensitive chemicals you use to develop film, Seung-Hwan Oh ends up with these distorted photos that are strangely beautiful.

Spring flowers reveal their true selves in extreme close-up.

Flowers are one of the great joys of spring, but viewing them under a scanning electron microscope uncovers a surreal, alien beauty.

These images were created by the award-winning German microscopy team Eye of Science, comprising photographer Oliver Meckes and biologist Nicole Ottawa.
