When we seek the unknown, we gaze at the stars, imagining all of the wonders they’re hiding. But there’s a whole universe at our feet, just waiting for explorers. Don Komarechka from Barrie, Ontario, Canada, is one of them. His macro photographic adventures reveal a deeper understanding of how everything works, even the ones we cannot see with our own eyes.
“I had always loved science but never had a mind for the theory,” Komarechka told Bored Panda. “Photography became my way of exploring the world in ways I couldn’t see with my own eyes, combining science and art. I was inspired early on by my father who had a lifelong love of photography from a young age but could never pursue it professionally. When a long-term illness was close to claiming his life, he gave me an envelope with money inside, asking me to spend it on something that he could see me enjoy. I went out and bought my first camera, and we bonded over the sharing of photographic knowledge before the end.”
