TITLE: "The Secret Code of Nature"
Plankton and small fish are moving fast at night. A battle dance between hunters and prey. The traces that remind of the battle resemble a galaxy, like ours.
The series presents an extremely small natural phenomenon as a sort of microcosm for the larger universe. The moving forms of plankton and small fish pop out against the dents and featureless background. In addition, a compelling degree of the time in motion is arrested in these photographs.
