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.
