These pigmented transparent fish creatures are photographed with neon lighting. The photography series created by Adam Summers showcases a narrow division between art and science in detailed fish anatomy. These sea creatures are displayed in colorful neon lighting to show fine detail of their anatomical structure and vertebrate. The project series was developed within the School of Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences along with the director of Comparative Vertebrate Biomechanics Lab.

These images show an educational understanding of how fish move and how their physical structure components are in fine detail. The fish used for these photographs are deceased where they can be dissected to explore their remains. Adam Summers shows an interesting vision of transparent fish where he strives to explore the beauty and refined detail of these extraordinary sea creatures.
