Microsculpture: The Insect Portraits of Levon Biss

March 2nd - May 5th, 2024
Open Daily 9:30am – 5:00pm

Flamingo Gardens is proud to present Microsculpture, a series of beautiful, high magnification images that capture the microscopic form of insects in striking large-format and high-resolution detail. This exhibition was created by photographer Levon Biss and showcases the insect collection of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

Microsculpture presents a new perspective on insects, enabling audiences to study and appreciate the hidden details of the insect world in a unique and engaging way. Each image on display took about four weeks to create and was created from more than 8,000 separate images taken using microscope lenses. The photographs were then printed in large-scale formats, with insects that are millimeters long being presented at up to 9 feet tall.

About the Artist: Levon Biss is an award-winning British photographer. His work has covered a wide range of photographic genres, from portraits to documentary, and sports. Levon’s portrait subjects have included Quentin Tarantino, President Emmanuel Macron, and Usain Bolt.  His work has also appeared on the covers of TIME, The New York Times, GQ, and Sports Illustrated. Biss’ work has been exhibited world-wide and is housed in both private and museum collections.
