Wonderland: The Magical Macro Insect Photography of Nadav Bagim

ADVERTISEMENT

Insects are one of the most popular subject matters when it comes to macro photography. They offer a wide variety of colors, sizes and character to capture. Israel-based Nadav Bagim took this genre one magical step further by photographing insects within attentively crafted whimsical worlds. The ambience in which they are placed will make you think of dreams and fairytales, as well as make you regret all the times you might have unintentionally squashed a bug.

Calling this photo series, “Wonderland”, Nadav Bagim explains how this project came about:
“I started ‘Wonderland’ about four years ago,’ Bagim explains. “I’ve always loved nature and as a child spent most of the time with my nose inches above the ground tracking and observing little insects and animals. That’s why the first lens I bought was a macro. I started photographing about seven years ago – I’m self-taught and a big fan of trial and error. I now teach photography in several schools and lecture about macro photography and the tiny world around us.”
