Navigating Between Science and Art

Martin Oeggerli, the internationally famous scientific photographer, has produced a stunning coffee table book of 104 pages of images from the near invisible world he studies. Martin founded Micronaut, a library of images using the electron microscope in the Swiss cancer research universities in which he works. You can see a preview of the book here:

The book has an introductory essay by Sibylle Sunda in which she says this.
Life on planet earth has been explored, catalogued and artistically fermented over and over again. Yet, there is a lot more waiting to be discovered - vast, imposing and utterly beautiful!
Martin's book is certainly proof of that.
