Ben Dobson

Ben Dobson explores texture, colour, perspective, light and shade using mineral, vegetable and animal matter prepared with skill for the microscope and camera.

Dobson explains: “Beauty is more intense in tiny places but few ever see the wonder of crystals, diatoms or human hair viewed using the various lighting techniques available to the microscope photographer.”

He is based in Cambridge and will be exhibiting work at King’s College, Cambridge from 20 February until 10 March.

Dobson is also co-organising the SciArt Exhibition at the Cavendish, the world-renowned physics laboratories, which will be open to the public 19-23 March, 10:00-17:00.
