Through the Eyes of Insects

A hidden world revealed through Ultraviolet Induced Visible Fluorescence

The ongoing project “Through the Eyes of Insects” uses ultraviolet induced visible fluorescence photography (UVIVF) to display insects, arachnids, and their habitat in a new light. It utilises naturally occurring ultraviolet fluorescence within these species to tell the story of the intricacies of insect’s vision; that due to their ability to see into the ultraviolet light spectrum, their world is entirely different from our own. These images offer a representation of their invisible world for us to explore. This ongoing project attempts to reconnect us with the often disregarded, misunderstood and even feared members of the natural world through visually stunning and thought-provoking imagery.
