By Dr. Gary Greenberg, Stacy Keach

Потрясающие трёхмерные микрофотографии песчинок обычного пляжного песка. listed here are the sands of Hawaii and Tahiti, the Sahara and the Poles, a volcano, each one exquisitely assorted, and every telling a desirable geological tale. crimson sand and yellow, white sand and black, making a song sand and quicksand: Greenbergs images demonstrate the sophisticated variations of their colours, textures, sizes, and shapes. And as this infinitesimal global unfolds so does an exciting rationalization of ways every one grain of sand starts and kinds and unearths itself in a specific position, one among one billion and special. Вот тот мир, рассматривать в песчинку, благодаря потрясающей трехмерной микрофотографии доктор Гари Гринберг. В какой-то, весь песок выглядит так - бесчисленное зерен в обширном пространстве пляжа. Присмотритесь - гораздо ближе - и ваш взгляд на песке никогда не будет то же самое. Используя фантастические microphotographic методы, которые он разработал, Гринберг приглашает читателей поймет странный и прекрасный мир, что каждая песчинка содержит. Вот песках Гавайев и Таити, Сахары и поляки, вулкан, изысканно каждого разные, и каждая рассказывает увлекательную геологической истории. Красный и желтый песок, белый песок и черный, пение песка и зыбучие пески: Greenbergs фотографий выявить тонкие различия в их цвета, фактур, размеров и форм. И так как это бесконечно малая мире разворачивается так же интригующий объяснение того, как каждая песчинка начинается и форм и оказывается в определенном месте, одна из миллиардов и единственный в своем роде.

A pair of coral fragments collected from a beach in Maui. Colorful grains of coral constitute much of the sand on tropical beaches (magnification 60x). habitat for a large variety of marine life, which is reflected in the bits and pieces that make their way to nearby beaches. The life forms that inhabit the reefs sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and recycle it into their calcium carbonate shells. Human intervention has significantly reduced the number of these marine organisms, causing the levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide to increase and global warming to worsen.

Art has always depended upon science and technology; more than ever, science depends upon art to bring information to the people. Art will lead the way in conveying science to the consciousness of twenty-first-century culture. Since 2001, I have turned my attention to creating art through the microscope, rather than using microscopes only for scientific explorations. As I've examined bits and pieces of everyday things-pieces of food, flowers, and grains of sand-I've discovered an extraordinary universe in things we take for granted.

This part of the procedure is the most difficult and requires a steady hand and a good deal of patience. Falling dust, a breath of wind, and static forces are the enemies. After the grains are in place and any dust particles have been cleared away, the cameras are attached to the microscope to record a series of 3-D photographs. It requires anywhere from six to twelve shots taken side by side to capture the whole scene. The individual photographs are then brought together in one large, seamless image using Photoshop.
