From the 22-Sept-2016, the Opera Gallery in London will be showing the artwork Body Obsessed World by scientific sculptor Jonty Hurwitz.
A set of stunning photographs that reveal the natural beauty in science are set to go on show to the public.
The 100 incredible images are the shortlisted entries for the Royal Photographic Society's International Images for Science competition and highlight how important photography is for academics.
The show includes a photo of one of the smallest 3D sculptures ever made, a surfing girl that measures just 150 micrometres tall, taken by Stefan Diller. The sculpture was made by nano-artist Jonty Hurwitz using a 3D printing technique called multiphoton lithography which tightens polymer resin with infrared light one 3D pixel at a time.
They say that the question "How do you create your work of " the great Michelangelo replied : " I take a stone and cut off all unnecessary ." Jonty Hurwitz brought this principle to the limit, leaving no accidental microns .
