Art is getting bigger. Whether it’s one hundred million sunflower seeds in the Tate Modern, or Damien Hirst’s vitrines, installation art is here to stay.
This is great, but sometimes it’s nice to concentrate on the smaller things in life, which is why we’ve fallen in love with Sharon Johnstone’s dew drop photos.
She uses a macro lens to get up close and personal to nature and the effects are stunning and enigmatic.
She explains “I love finding details in nature that people don't normally notice.
"With macro photography I escape to another little world. I love exploring these tiny details and finding beautiful colours and abstract compositions within nature”
Johnstone studied fine art print making at the University for the Creative Arts, before turning to photography.
She loves the challenges that macro photography creates.
Johnstone doesn’t edit the photographs beyond a little contrast and colour balancing, preferring people to see nature in its, um, natural state.
