Being human, it’s easy to ignore things that aren’t, well, human-sized. We pass by millions of tiny but amazing things every day, but hardly ever stop to look.
Luckily, someone is here to remind you to look closer, at least vicariously.
That would be Polish photographer Magda Wasiczek, who uses a macro lens and a bit of patience to capture the tiny, unseen worlds that exist all around us, but that we never see.
Slowing down and peeking closer not only shows us the incredible things we’ve been missing, but can also help us see our own world in a new way.
What we take for granted as mundane suddenly becomes something new and amazing if we look at it the right way, like how wood shards and resin become alien landscapes in these cleverly made rings.
Wasiczek snaps her photos in meadows, in her garden, and wherever inspiration strikes. “I have no planned shots,” she says. “I let nature surprise me.”
Check out some of her photos below, and see what you might be missing!
