THE SNAILS, 2015

PLANT SEEDS, 2014

I get these awesome seeds from the Umweltzentrum Dresden, with ask to take some shots. So I did ;-)

SAND GRAINS, 2014

Have you ever imagined, how the sand looks under the microscope? :-) Here are just few examples of the structures. Do not be afraid of clicking on this link

Five sand grains from Crete - each shoot by light microscope as well as SEM and merged together...

CRUSTACEAN EGGS, 2013

Thanks to these small objects, crustaceans can survive absolutely extreme conditions...

THE HUMAN HEAD, 2013

PLANTS ON THE MOVE, 2012

Not really scientific, but also not too traditional views on the plants. Series taken for an occasion of the International Plant Fascination Day.

BUTTERFLY WINGS, 2011

The tiny scales covering both the butter­flies’ wings and body are modified hairs providing various fundamental functions including insulation and thermoregulation and aiding gliding flight and colouration. Most scales are lamellar, while other forms may be hair-like or specialized as androconia exuding sexual pheromone. The lumen or surface of the scales has a complex structure. It induces colour either due to the pigmentary colours contained within or due to optical phenomena based on its three-di­mensional structure. The various scales display a large diversity of vivid or indistinct patterns helping the butterfly to protect it­self by camouflage and mimicry, as well as helping it to attract mates.

This series I did for the invited exhibition in the National Museum in the Prague. It was awesome work with great people, and I was really amazed by the butterfly wings. Finally, with these shots I won the gold medal at International Photography Awards, something like an Oscar for the movie makers.

FOSSIL CRUSTACEANS, 2011

SEM! CRUSTACEANA, 2010 

It was like a dream. I just finished my masters at the University and received a call from the editor in chief - of the best (maybe for me, personally) Czech popularization journal - Živa. She offered me my own exhibition in the centre of Prague. Topic: Crustaceans of the World. Well, there was nothing to think about and I did it. Worked hard on the shots, post process, labels, prints, advertising. And results? It worked! :-) The exhibition became known quite well and was shown to public on about ten different places in the Czech Republic until now! Thanks to the support of the journal as well University I printed with the best possible technology - with the LightJet. It still lives. And maybe... there will be a book on this topic as well. I left them here with merged labels (in the Czech), as they are an essential part of it. Enjoy!
