Just a glance at Hiki Komori’s exquisite double exposure portraits, and I can’t help but wonder what is going on inside each subject’s mind. Komori’s images seamlessly merge the naked branches of trees in winter or the stark iron architecture of industrial sites into the faces of each individual.

Linden Gledhill Butterfly and Moth Wings header4

Butterflies and moths are already appreciated for their beauty, but if you look really close, you might think they’re even more stunning. Biochemist and photographer Linden Gledhill enjoys looking at things on a macro level, capturing everything from soap film and ferro fluid, to flower petals and insects in flight… way up close. In this series he’s looking at the delicate wings of moths and butterflies so closely that the surface of their wings reveal themselves to be multi-colored scales, like those found on a fish or reptiles, only much, much smaller.
