The seaweed is always greener—in Day-Glo! A Japanese fisherman has created the prettiest science experiments you can imagine by adding beautiful, vibrant colors to transparent sea specimens. Iori Tomita creates and photographs the fascinating creatures, and has even published a full book of photos (in Japanese and English!) called New World Transparent Specimens.
Tomita can take six months to a year making a new specimen; working with different dyes, enzymes, shading, and more to get it just right. Revealing the inner workings of sea life in a beautiful, colorful way “communicates the vibrancy of living things,” he says. What do you think?!
