Insect macro photography reveals masked figure-like forms

Part study of symmetry, part observation of insects and their anthropomorphic appearance, this series by Pascal Goet is an incredible one.

Manipulating light and shadow, the French photographer captures the vibrant appearances of insects, highlighting symmetrical patterns that, upon first glance, look like masked figures. This effect is enhanced when the photos are printed in large scale to be displayed in exhibitions. Goet writes, “The large size prints create a genuine encounter between the viewer and these amazing personages, people of a parallel world.”

Goet has been in the macro-photography business for over 26 years, and much of his work can be found on his website.
