Common exhibition of Stephen Dalton and Ghislain Simard
This has been achieved by a combination of refinements including transferring from 35mm to a medium format digital back, and by eliminating all traces of image blur through a faster flash speed of 1/60,000 second! Equally important, he has updated his set-ups to produce even more natural backgrounds. Further improvements were made by meticulous attention to the choice of natural backgrounds that echoed the typical habitat of the insect.
The parallel approaches of Stephen and Ghislain converge when we discover their new work: images of such extraordinary quality that they can only be truly appreciated in large prints. They capture high-speed moments far too short to be watched by our eyes magnified larger than life size revealing details invisible to the human eye. This is the magic alchemy of macrophoto and microseconds.
The exhibition «MicroMagic» is arranged in such a way to show how the style of each photographer complement one another. Indeed, the photographs of Stephen and Ghislain, although technically very similar, have their own character.
