You probably know by now that I get very excited when I comeacross art that pairs science with art and food. I have found this new artist, Eran Gilat, who does just this.
In addition to his obvious sentiment for science, he has a great aesthetic for prop styling. A skill in its own right that is hard to perfect.
Dr. Gilat is an Israeli neuroscientist, who is also an avid photographer who specializes in biological specimens.
Here are some examples of his evocative photographs. You can see more at http://www.erangilat.com.
