People usually fear what they do not know or understand. The world of spiders & insects is inhabited by many creatures that might look alien or dangerous but are actually harmless to us.

With WILD MACRO, Photographer Christian Brockes strives to make these fascinating little creatures visible – for everyone – through extreme macro photography.
