Portrait photographer Levon Biss‘ day job is shooting celebrities like pro golfer Rory McIlroy and film director Quentin Tarantino. But in his spare time, Biss began shooting insects. It’s snowballed into an effort he’s calling Microsculpture, done in conjunction with the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, where he got his microscopic models. Take a look a portion of the exhibit below.
