Nikon Small World

The Nikon Small World competition was founded in 1974 to recognize excellence in photography through the microscope. Nikon Small World is widely regarded as the leading forum for recognizing the art, proficiency and photographic excellence involved in photomicrography. In 2011, a sister competition, Nikon Small World in Motion, was launched in response to technology advances allowing for recording movies or digital time-lapse photography through the microscope.

This exhibition will showcase the top selections from the 48th annual Small World competition alongside rare fossils and other items from the Museum’s world-renowned Collections department. Marvel at the remarkable photos of an embryonic hand of a Madagascar giant day gecko and the blood vessel networks in the intestine of an adult mouse, as Nikon Small World invites you to consider our natural world from a new perspective. Open from March 24 – April 30.
