The Hidden Beauty of Seeds & Fruits displays the carpology collection of the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh like never before. Levon Biss painstakingly examined 3,500 historical specimens to select just 121 for inclusion, highlighting those with the most striking evolutionary adaptations and stories. The images allow the audience to appreciate these tiny specimens in levels of detail normally only available with the use of microscopes. Using his bespoke camera system, Levon is able to capture unprecedented levels of detail from specimens far too small to view with the naked eye.

Levon Biss is a British artist widely regarded as one of the leading macro photographers of his generation. His photography has been exhibited around the globe and is held in numerous public and private collections. Focusing on natural history, Levon’s images present otherwise unseen worlds to a wider audience, helping us enjoy and appreciate elements of nature that are normally invisible to the naked eye. He has worked with historic collections in the Middle East, Europe and the U.S. and regularly collaborates with the major international museums.
