In the Tradition of Leeuwenhoek…

Jennifer Frazer at The Artful Amoeba has a post on Leeuwenhoek and she links (figuratively and electronically) our historic hero to the modern Dutch photomicrographer, Wim van Egmond.

Van Egmond is very well known in the photomicrographic community and some of his amazing work can be seen at Micropolitan Museum of Microscopic Art Forms. One of Wim van Egmond’s latest projects includes his participation on the VPRO Beagle expedition, as they travel in the wake of Darwin. There he has been busy doing work suitable to the current heir of the observational tradition of Leeuwenhoek.

And visit this article to see how Wim van Egmond has discovered the secret to Leeuwenhoek’s success!
