Snowflakes by Alexey Kljatov

Octavian C. on

More than a few artists have proved that macro photography has merits beyond simply magnifying very small things and can capture aesthetically beautiful images lurking beyond our usual visual perception.

Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov has devised a clever way to bring the wonder of macro photography to the minuscule world of snowflakes. Using a homemade rig comprised of a working camera lens, a wooden board, some screws and old camera parts, Kljatov captures the breathtaking intricacies of snow, six-sided symmetry and all. The wide range of shapes Kljatov manages to document certainly support the claim that no two snowflakes are alike while the tiny crystalline sculptures appear too perfect to believe.
