The Michael H. Rode 'From Below' photography series shows what the world looks like from the perspective of a cockroach, spider or ant. While use of a bird's eye view is nothing new, a view from below is definitely something fresh for the photography scene that is sure to get tons of attention.

At first disorienting, the photos make for the kind of series that begs much more than a quick glance. The first impression of each entry into the collection is usually one of confusion, then fascination and finally, fixation. There's something about seeing such familiar things -- a standard bedroom or kitchen, for example -- from a completely new view that truly captures attention. Be careful to sit still when sifting through the Michael H. Rode From Below collection though. I'll bet it could easily give you motion sickness.
