In the Blink of an Eye Summary


In the Blink of an Eye: The World as You've Never Seen it by John Blackenbury

This is a remarkable collection of photographs revealing aspects of the world around us, that are either too small to notice or so quick as to be invisible to the human eye. Cambridge University scientist and photographer John Brackenbury has developed special photographic equipment and techniques that have allowed him to take these remarkable pictures and reveal hitherto ignored or invisble aspects of the natural world. Featuring 100 extraordinary images that will astound and amaze from the very beginning - the vortex created by the flap of a butterfly's wing; a frog diving into water; the view of the world through a raindrop. With high-quality, full-page reproductions and captions explaining each picture and how it was obtained, "Blink of an Eye" will captivate the imagination from the outset.
