The enthusiasm for this magical process has completely taken over Nicole Ottawa (* 1965) and Oliver Meckes (* 1963). The graduate biologist and the photographer track down the quick-change artists with meticulous precision. Between science and art, they have specialized in photography with a scanning electron microscope, which makes them to pioneers in their field! Thus they create portraits of insect parents and their children, whose overwhelming size visualizes even the smallest details. The change in scale allows the viewer discover an otherwise invisible world in the area of tension between resistance and fascination.
