Marcel Christ transforms household objects into dynamic pieces of art. Photographing objects up-close can instantly convert them into something entirely unfamiliar and incongruous. Christ pushes the boundary even further by placing each object under the lens of a microscope. The photos are endlessly fascinating because it’s impossible to tell what the object was in its past life.

The fact that you don’t know what you’re actually looking at makes the viewing process even more exhilarating, allowing you to submerge yourself in the fantasy of the images. For all you know, you could be looking at the icy glaciers of a far-off planet.

Ultimately, the series provides an unusual yet captivating commentary on the transformative powers of perspective. Stats for Microscopic Object Photography Trending: This Quarter & Average
