One of the things I love the most about photography is that the camera lens has the ability to reveal things that we would otherwise not ever notice. Infrared sensors (and infrared film) and macro lenses, much like the microscope and the telescope, reveal whole worlds that exist beyond our natural senses.

Sometimes, when I’m at a loss, I take a deep breath and put on my magnifiers. There’s a whole universe of textures, colors, insects, and fascinating patterns, all within five feet of where you are. Take the time to look, and you’ll be surprised.

This detail photograph of a cow’s skull reminds me of the grand canyon – the striated lines and the textures are reminiscent of a craggy peak. This isn’t the first time I’ve done up-close studies of skeletal remains, and it probably won’t be the last.
