Macro photography is all about showcasing a subject larger than it is in real life — an extreme close-up of something small. Photography is always a matter of perspective. “It’s an alien world when you get into the macro level.” - Ben Long.
Macro photography challenges the photographer to capture the minute, granular details of a world that generally escapes our daily attention: this can include insects, plants, natural and human produced details of any and every subject matter in the world around us – from the texture of feathers to the geometric labyrinth of a microchip board.
Praxis Gallery presents of photographic art that transforms the miniature into the larger than life, images that showcase the unseen and overlooked, and tiny moments of beauty presented through a magnified perspective.
