Gorgeous Photography of Phenomena Beyond the Human Eye


Here at Flavorpill, we’re always game to fill our eyes with beautiful images — but we have to admit, we never knew just how beautiful scientific visions of the world could be. In Seeing Beyond the Human Eye, the latest installment of the “Off Book” series from PBS and Kornhaber Brown, artists and scientists discuss the new and developing ways we can experience the world: namely, through microphotography, astrophotography, slow-motion video, and time-lapse video, all of which create gorgeous images not visible with the human eye alone. “It’s our curiosity and thirst for the unknown that has driven us to uncover the beauty of the universe,” the creators write. “Technology has allowed us to overcome the boundaries of human perception and explore beyond the limits of the naked eye.” Click through to have your mind blown.
