Patterns in Nature

Amy Lamb was a biochemist studying protein synthesis; now she's a photographer, and her online studio can be found here. Her work is phenomenal. Dr. Lamb's work is presently being exhibited at the United States Botanic Garden.

"These are purely visual comparisons as opposed to scientific comparisons," she says. "But as a scientist, I looked at the flowers not only for their beauty, but also from [the perspective of] why and how they got to be these forms and colors. My eye is not just about design, it's about science."

There's an article in the Scientist about her as well.

  1. I haven't gotten to this issue of the Scientist yet, so thanks for the heads up - her work is excellent.
