MICROSCOPIC/TELESCOPIC

The Arabic word 'tab' is used in the Qur'an to refer to nature. The true essence of the word, however, is interpreted to mean 'the veil between man and God'. In this series I explore the relationship between the microscopic and the telescopic realms of nature, creating a framework for the way in which we perceive the universe and all its natural elements. Using photography I capture minuscule details from natural materials, namely plants, trees, rocks and soil, and digitally enhance the images with minimal intervention to reveal the profound visual similarities and interconnectedness between the microscopic and the telescopic worlds.
