Beautiful booze: Alcohol under the microscope

Beautiful booze: Alcohol under the microscope

Ever wondered what your favourite tipple looks like under the microscope?

Neither had we until we stumbled across these beautiful, sometimes psychedelic, images.

These slides are so beautiful and unique, they are pure modern art!

The unusual pictures are the handywork of a photography site in the US called BevShots and the craft was first founded by a research scientist.

“In 1992, a research scientist named Michael Davidson stumbled upon a genius idea right under his nose – literally. In his 25 year career through the many facets of microscopy, he had taken photographs under the microscope of a collection of items – DNA, biochemicals and vitamins.

Looking for novel ways to fund his Florida State University lab, Davidson decided to take his microphotographs to businesses for possible commercial opportunities. While presenting his pictures to established retail companies, one necktie manufacturer changed his creative direction with just one word – cocktails.

With this new direction, Davidson took his microphotography a step further. Along with mixed drinks, he picked out a few favorite brews and wines too, took some shots of the beverages under his microscope

BevShots® are photographs of alcohol under a microscope. These high-quality photographs of your favorite beers, wines, cocktails, liquors and mixers were taken after they have been crystallized on a slide and shot under a polarized light microscope. As the light refracts through the beverage crystals, the resulting photos have naturally magnificent colors and composition. ”
