“一花一世界”,17张美图带你走进微观世界!


  • 尼康的"微观世界”比赛旨在表彰显微镜摄影艺术和科学。
  • 今年的获奖照片展示了活跃的神经元、树叶脉络和眼球血管,以及恐龙骨头内的彩色晶体。

在显微镜下,日常事物看起来都大为迥异——包括如上图所示的一棵南方活橡树的叶子。

贝勒医学院显微镜成像设备主任杰森·柯克喜欢摆弄显微镜,并用其在自家后院拍摄东西。为了创造上面的图像,他用定制的显微镜照亮一片叶子的极小部分结构。柯克拍摄了大约200张照片,然后将其堆叠在一起,从而创造了这幅生机勃勃的照片。

照片中叶子上呈白色的毛状体,是保护植物的小分枝。帮助植物调节气流的气孔呈紫色,在叶子中呈现蓝绿色的则是携带水分的连通管道。

这项技术成就让柯克赢得了今年尼康“微观世界”摄影比赛的冠军。该比赛是尼康相机公司于1974年发起的,旨在表彰显微镜摄影方面的成就。

“尼康的微观世界是为了向世界展示艺术和科学是如何在显微镜下融合在一起。今年的冠军得主就是这种融合的最好例子,”尼康相机公司的企业沟通部经理埃里克·弗勒姆在一则新闻报道中说道。

在2021年的比赛中,尼康收到了来自88个国家近1900份参赛作品。评委小组选出了20名获奖者,并提名表彰了其他80幅作品。有些照片,比如柯克以全新视角展示了熟悉的事物,而另一些则展示了我们周围从未见过的有机体。

以下是比赛中其他16张令人印象深刻的照片。
