In the Blink of an Eye: The World as You've Never Seen It

In the Blink of an Eye: The World as You've Never Seen It Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This remarkable collection of photographs reveals aspects of the world around us, that are either too small to notice or so quick as to be invisible to the human eye. Cambridge University scientist and photographer John Brackenbury has developed special photographic equipment and techniques that have allowed him to take these remarkable pictures and reveal hitherto ignored or invisble aspects of the natural world. Featuring 100 extraordinary images that will astound and amaze: the vortex created the flap of a butterflys wing, a frog diving into water, the view of the world through a raindrop and many other amazing captured moments. With high-quality, full-page reproductions and captions explaining each picture and how it was obtained, Blink of an Eye will captivate the imagination from the outset.
