Loh Xiang Yun’s background as a scientific botanical illustrator for the Singapore Botanic Gardens already gives clues as to what can be found within ‘Microscopic Images’. Her book explores the incidental qualities involved in creating pen-and-ink illustrations of plant specimens and their minutiae for scientific publications, and in particular the photographic “by-products” of this process. Through a selection of these images, she attempts to translate the processes and experiences of the artist who, when working with them, recalls otherwise unnoticed qualities and possibilities obscured by their original, instrumental purpose. Includes an interview with Xiang Yun.
