Booze Becomes Beautiful Under a Microscope. It’s Modern Art…with a Twist.

Jan 15, 2014 By Molly 0

Blown up to the size of posters, these colorful abstractions are pure modern art. Definitely imaginable on a wall. But originally they were invisible specs under the microscope at BevShots

These high-quality photographs of your favorite beers, wines, cocktails, liquors, and mixers were taken after they were crytallized on a slide and shot under a polarized light microscope. As the light refracts through the beverage crystals, the resulting photos feature naturally magnificent colors and composition.
