Nikon Small World Exhibition Opening Reception

Today's brilliant image is of an anglerfish ovary, taken by Wistar's own James Hayden, the Imaging Facility Director. This image was awarded fourth place in the 2009 competition. (James used a 2-channel microscope, autofluorescence, 4X objective.)

This is a taste of how microscopy can bring amazing images to life. In the Nikon Small World Exhibition, the world’s best photomicrographers have captured dynamic images that showcase a wide variety of advanced scientific disciplines.

The exhibit of winning images from Nikon’s 2011 Small World photography contest gives you a glimpse into a world that most have never seen—the intersection of art and science as viewed through the lens of a microscope.

The Wistar Institute is the only local host of the Nikon Small World exhibition.

This free exhibit is open to the public from February 6 through March 2, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
