Michael Peres is a photographer with a passion for the microscopic beauty of snowflakes.

He captures snowflakes on pieces of black velvet, then quickly places the fragile flakes on a microscopic slide with a dissecting needle before they melt – and the results are nothing short of magical.

“I have a love-hate relationship with winter,” said Peres, who has lived in Rochester, New York, for 30 years. “I hate shoveling and cleaning my car off, but there’s no other way to photograph snowflakes if you’re not in a place where it snows.”

"This, then, is the ultimate paradox of thought: to want to discover something that thought itself cannot think."- Soren Kierkegaard
