Gorgeous Macro Photography of The Elements

Check out these absolutely brilliant photos by Japanese chemist and photographer, R. Tanaka. His goal was to capture a microscopic look into some of the world’s most photogenic elements, and he’s managed to do just that. We’re blown away by this rare mix of art + science, and his ability to turn these mysterious substances into a work of beauty and intrigue. He’s managed to bring the periodic table of elements to life with his fascinating project.

Watch him turn elements such as bismuth, platinum, and even lead into art below.
