Last week we shared a story about a photographer that employs a pretty unique process to her film. (Spoiler alert: she pees on them.) Now we meet a french photographer that uses an even more eclectic method to create his images. Rather than using chemicals and paper or a digital darkroom, Lia Giraud grows his photos using light sensitive micro-organisms as part of his Cultures project. [Read more…]
You’ve probably heard of Nanotechnology, and you probably know that its nothing new. But what if you heard that nanotechnology now puts a camera in your blood vessels?

Levent Degertekin has developed exactly that. The tiny camera is not only just a breakthrough by definition; it’s apparently a breakthrough in its performance as well. It was developed to project real-time, 3d, high definition imaging of the inside of our vessels, arteries, and hearts. The prototype developed by researchers generated images at 60 frames per second.
