Duke Research Blog Features BioMajor's Photography

Lichen photographed by Thomas Barlow

BioMajor Thomas Barlow is making a name for himself as a nature photographer; the Duke Research Blog recently featured some of his work.  His ingenious images combine biological specimens with items of lab equipment, shiny objects, and extreme closeups.  His technique is exacting, but it produces images of amazing clarity and depth.  Thomas has recently begun photographing lichens for Daniele Armaleo and Jolanta Miadlikowska.  The sculptural shapes and unusual colors of lichens suit his eye perfectly.  Thomas finds the lichens stunning.  We find his pictures equally so!
