Microcosmos | 'Beauty Too Small To See With The Naked Eye'

Taken by over 30 'microscopists' using a variety of powerful microscopes, Microcosmos [by Brandon Broll] charters a voyage through a miniature world showing the unlikeliest parts of our lives in minuscule detail ... 

The spectacular visuals were captured using a variety of traditional light-based microscopes, powerful scanning electron microscopes which bombard the subject with electrons and build the image using a computer and transmission electron microscopes.
