A study of Butterfly Wings by Linden Gledhill- 01.15.13

lgledhill-bw-bluewhitebutterflywing.jpg Here’s the latest natural inspiration from our resident zoologist and London based editor, Justine Aw.

Photographer Linden Gledhill, who describes himself as “a biochemist by training, working for a large international pharmaceutical company developing biopharmaceuticals (protein molecules) to treat cancer and diabetes”, but whom you may know from his stunning work for Dentsu and Canon, photographs of snowflakes and homegrown snowflakes!

Linden has always had a fascination with the physical world, particularly nature and uses photography to capture the feeling of awe and inspiration that he feels. I love the way his work captures colors and textures and reveals entire worlds that are otherwise overlooked. In his butterfly wings series, Gledhill uses varying levels of magnification to show the tapestry of scales that make of the wings and the huge variety of scales themselves.

See lots of pictures on the next page!

These incredible images are captured a fully automated macro focusing rail that Gledhill helped develop alongside Cognisys and you can take a look at the rig here. The results are beautiful!
