Personal Project The hidden beauty of sunflower seeds. The sunflower seed is a small but mighty seed. It is the most consumed nut in the world and typically one of those objects that we take for granted without ever considering how beautiful they actually are. Using new techniques offered by digital photography, I am able to zoom in extremely on the seeds. The smallest details, not even perceptible with the naked eye, are reproduced razor-sharp. This gives the seeds an unreal character and makes them appear much larger than they really are. If you see the photos of the seeds side by side, you will notice that each seed is unique and has its own identity.
