Mapping the Microcosm
A long-term ecological documentary initiative
"Mapping the Microcosm" is a long-term documentary project I've started for the purpose of digitizing small ecological niches (or microbiomes) using photography. These multi-gigapixel scenes (1,000+ megapixels) illuminate biotic and abiotic elements on a scale that shows both macroscopic and near-microscopic detail.
To view the images in full detail below, click on the full-screen icon in the left pane (bottom left button), then use the scroll-wheel (or double-click) to explore different areas of the image. The first GigaMicroBiome below has been my most successful so far. It is made up of over 500 depth-stacked images, tiled into a stitched array.
