The Hidden Beauty of Seeds & Fruits

20 products

The Hidden Beauty of Seeds & Fruits displays the carpology collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh like never before. Photographer Levon Biss painstakingly examined 3,500 historical specimens to select just 121 for inclusion, highlighting those with the most striking evolutionary adaptations and stories. Many of the specimens date back to the early 19th Century and were collected by the pioneering botanists of their time, including those on the Challenger Expedition in 1872.

The images presented allow the audience to appreciate and study these tiny specimens in levels of detail normally only available with the use of microscopes. Using his photo stacking techniques and bespoke camera system, Levon is able to capture unprecedented levels of detail from specimens far too small to view with the naked eye providing us with an insight into an unseen world.
