Levon is a British photographer whose career has covered a wide breadth of photographic genres, from portrait to documentary and sport. His work has appeared on the covers of titles such as TIME magazine and The New York Times, with subjects including Quentin Tarantino, President Macron and Usain Bolt. For the last six years he has turned his attention to extreme macro photography.
Levon’s passion for nature and photography created Microsculpture (link to www.microsculpture.net), a unique photographic study of insects in mind-blowing magnification that has taken the genre of macrophotography to a new level. Biss has adapted traditional macro techniques to create a photographic process that reveals the minute detail of insects in a resolution never seen before.
His photographs are printed in large-scale formats, with insects that are only millimeters long being presented as 3 meter high prints. Each image takes over 3 weeks to create and are produced from up to 10,000 individual photographs. The Microsculpture exhibition has toured for 4 years, with 16 solo shows in 18 countries.
His latest project, ‘Carpology’, focuses on seeds and fruit and will be presented as an exhibition and book in late 2020.
