BBC News announces a “Cancer cell image wins top award” in an international photography contest. Dr Paul Andrews, from the University of Dundee, won one of the prestigious awards from the Nikon Small World Competition
The School of Life Sciences researcher took the photo using a digital deconvolution microscope. A university spokesman said understanding the way cells segregate was critical for cancer studies. Dr Andrews’ image shows a cancer cell dividing its chromosomes into two new cells.
Macro and closeup photography is becoming a very popular photography skill. After all, once you’ve photographed everything you see, then why not learn to photograph the things you can’t see. Or at least can’t see easily. ;-)
