Robert Dash’s work illustrates that photography has no bounds when met with imagination and innovative technology. In compositing elements captured with an electron microscope and DSLR macro photography, Dash reveals integral building blocks and a microcosm of our everyday sustenance, making the invisible visible, for a visual and educational exploration.
