The Insect Portraits of Levon Biss 

From the collections of Oxford University Museum of Natural History

The startling photography of Levon Biss reveals the astonishing and stunning detailed form of insects with breathtaking clarity. The images, created in collaboration with Oxford University Museum of Natural History, present insect specimens as never before, using large-format photographic prints to expose their beauty at microscopic levels. Combining art with science, visitors can view the images up close and discover more about these fascinating creatures through their shape, colour and sculptural forms. 

Alongside these exquisite photographs, will be a rare opportunity to view a select display of insects from the outstanding collections cared for by Hampshire Cultural Trust, and to learn about Hampshire's own local naturalist hero Gilbert White. With our planet the subject of much current debate, come and find out why the survival of insects and protection of our eco-systems are more vital now than ever.

For families there is a fun interactive area in the gallery for your budding science enthusiasts to explore lots of bug-related fun experiments and activities. 

Please check the Willis Museum opening times and note the gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays.
