cannot seem to find them from 61 ( others shot in 62 - 63 are found in the photobook below ).

though I don't have workshop issues, komiyama seems to have them sometimes.
also they have many other publications from the past.

this could be seen as truth behind the veil, but also it's possible to see it speaking of the equivalence of veil and skin, as the same surface.
if some regard clothing as second skin, there should be others for whom the (first) skin is fleshly clothing, a living veil.

and nietzsche
Quote:
.....we no longer believe that truth remains truth when the veils are withdrawn; we have lived too much to believe this. today we consider it a matter of decency not to wish to see everything naked, or to be present at everything, or to understand and "know" everything.
"is it true that god is present everywhere?" a little girl asked her mother; "I think that's indecent" - a hint for philosophers! one should have more respect for the bashfulness with which nature has hidden behind riddles and iridescent uncertainties. perhaps truth is a woman who has reasons for not letting us see her reasons? perhaps her name is - to speak greek - baubo?
oh, those greeks! they knew how to live. what is required for that is to stop courageously at the surface, the fold, the skin, to adore appearance, to believe in forms, tones, words, in the whole olympus of appearance. those greeks were superficial - out of profundity.....

Wow, those are pretty amazing. It's insane how the colors and the cleanness of the photos have almost completely debugyfied those monsters. Somehow they almost come across as cat photos. Which is pretty great if you consider that usually macro shots of bugs lay it heavy on the b&w "look at these supercreepy alien monsters living amongst us" angle.

heh, maybe this should be moved to cats thread?

yes, what's impressive is not only the technology required for this photography, but its ability to completely rejuvenate the banal, at least for those of us (guilty) silly enough to on occasion forget that bugs are anything but. --what colors! in the same way, macro shots of the skin always seem to map an alien landscape:

also, "mooooo"

iirc Scanning EM (which produces images like the one below) was one of the more impressive methods of imaging fine but heavily embellished surfaces. I don't know where the field is right now, since it was more of a hobby thing since the resolution it provides wasn't as useful as those obtained from crystallography and now more conventional forms of EM. The surface would also have to be maintained through pretty rigorous treatments involving abrasive chemical treatment and heavy metal coating.


not a really a hobby field at all -- maybe you're thinking of transmission, not scanning ...

my first lab tech job was running an analog SEM, maybe one of the first they made. c. 1960s. took up an entire room and had one 6" CRT screen. cooled by big jugs of liquid nitrogen i had to ferry down two flights of stairs. only way to record what you were seeing was on, if you can believe it, silver gelatin polaroid film which had to literally be ordered from collectors on ebay.

room had to be dark to see anything on the CRT, so i would sit in a pitch-black room with this enormous machine for four or five hours and squint at these bizarre landscapes -- the word is alien -- that would occasionally make me physically uncomfortable or anxious to look at. then i'd load some silver gelatin and hope none of it had gone bad. as far as i know that thing and its ilk are still the standard, at least for american university research labs.

here's a couple pages of my work (2010). mostly palladium anodes before and after electrolysis in heavy water (successful and unsuccessful developments):

to be fair, there's a long and rich tradition of the git-er-done, come-what-may attitude in science. bovine skullhacking ain't got nothing on bodysnatching or vivisection in the history of anatomy, for example :)

excelsiom, however tenuous my grasp on science i do like me some alien landscapes, so thanks for sharing those!

René Burri, showing the fundamental difference between capturing movement through photography versus doing it through a film. These are not frozen moments where the present is pregnant with possibilities, a fork in time. Here the future is already happening.

just found (to my delight) that charles freger has a new (and improved) website with a vast catalogue of work
lots of people + lots of uniforms = pure fashion photography!
