The super-macro photography of Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov takes us where no human eye can venture. He captures snowflakes on the balcony of his Moscow home “mostly on glass surface, lighted by LED flashlight from opposite side of glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark woolen fabrics as background.” You can read more on his technique here. Click the photo for his Flickr slideshow. More on Alexey below.
Alexey Kljatov does not reveal much about himself. He lives in Moscow, is a photographer, science fiction and fantasy fan. He has a passion for capturing the perfection of snowflakes through his super-macro photography. Rather than write about himself online, he prefers to discuss his technique. Mostly he allows his images to do his talking. Alexey generously allows use of his images through a Creative Commons license.
