What Do Your Favorite Drinks Look Like Under a Microscope?


Well, they don’t look anything like your favorite drinks. In photographer William LeGoullon‘s series Fingerprints of Drinkable Culture, which we first spotted over at PetaPixel, he treats “the world’s top five most consumed man-made beverages like scientific specimens, allowing each liquid sample to dry before photographing them using a microscope. The resulting images provide us with a chance to analyze these fingerprints of drinkable culture as an act of art consumption.” It’s sort of amazing to see something so commonplace — something that we put in our bodies on a daily basis, no less — this close up. Click through to see the world’s most popular beverages under a microscope, and let us know if this changes your perception of them in the comments.
