Aina Tilups

Aina is a Toronto based photographer experimenting with various forms of abstract nature photography. Her current work consists of collage incorporating photo-transfer techniques


Other works include Electron Micrographs





Electron Micrographs--- Our visual perception of the world is limited by what our eyes can detect, but by using a microscope we can enter a new realm of hidden landscapes. We enter a place where the hairs on the surface of a leaf are trees in a magical forest, the eye of a moth appears as a geodesic dome and pollen grains are like giant cantaloupes.

These photographs have been imaged with a Scanning Electron Microscope (S.E.M ). These microscopes can achieve extremely high magnifications due to both the increased resolving ability of electrons and the strong electromagnetic lenses that focus them.
