Detailed overview:
The Micropolitan Museum
Title: The Micropolitan Museum
Creator: Egmond, Wim Van
Abstract: Wim van Egmond (1966) started his career as a painter and photographer. In his early works he used photographic manipulations to create images that were abstract and self-reflective, not just depictions of 'reality'. A life long interest in natural history combined with the fact that he grew up a few kilometers from Anthony van Leeuwenhoek's stomping ground may clarify the choice for photomicrography. One of his goals is to portray the microscopic world. In this type of work there is no need to deform reality to create abstract images. The credits go to the wonderful life forms that inhabit this Museum of Invisible Life. The photographer is now just a curator. He scoops up the artworks with a pipette, presses a button or two and patiently fills the museum. A collection that could easily fit on one fingernail. [Information of the supplier]
