We’ve featured close-up photographs of diatoms before, and as explained these images are microscopic photographs of algae. The patterns and colors created from the smallest organisms on earth are astounding.

But saying that they are microscopic photographs doesn’t really explain — how did the scientists and artists capture these amazing images?

Klaus Kemp is here to explain it for us. The video below gives us some insight into his studies and artwork, as diatoms have been his professional and artistic focus for many years.

Aerial Photographs Show the Collison of Natural and Constructed That We Create

We know that as humans on Earth our lives are a constant combination of organization and chaos. What we can’t always see, is the bigger picture.

Photographer Alex MacLean has taken it upon himself to capture just that. Leaning out of the window of an airplane, high above the organization, chaos, or organized chaos — as the case may be — he snaps photographs of the patterns, symmetry and asymmetry that our lives cause and create.

And the resulting images are what you see here.

MacLean is a pilot and a photographer, with a background in architecture. All of these elements of his amazing lifestyle are visible in his images, and seem to contribute to the way he sees and composes his shots. See more the collision of natural and constructed in his images below.
