Exhibit with multispectral works

There is currently an exhibit in Germany at the Museum Sinclair-House, Bad Homburg within the "Wandelmut" (willingness to change) series, which has some of my multispectral works on display. Visible here is a Rudbeckia hirta flower in human vision, simulated bee and butterfly vision, showing the "landing platform" only bees and butterflies can see, as they have the ability to see ultraviolet light (300-400nm), which we humans cannot see.

Those photos were taken with a full spectrum modifed Panasonic Lumix GH4, using an UV-Nikkor 4.5/105mm lens and various special filters, including the Baader-U "VENUS" UV transmission filter, light was a 1200Ws studio flash system, modified for higher UV output. Details about all that on my site https://photographyoftheinvisibleworld.blogspot.com/

Thanks Paul! This was a small exhibit, the one at the SF Science Museum and at the NY Natural History Museum however were big ones! ;-)
