Learning more and more about Cannabis I found the book Marijuana under the Microscope from Ted Kinsman. I was so fascinated with the images he created with a scanning electron microscope (SEM) that I felt a really great desire to paint them. I am so happy to announce that I got the permission from Ted Kinsman to paint the images from his book.
Under Original Art you will find the Folder Marijuana under the Microscope with all the paintings.
About Ted Kinsman
Kinsman has an AS in Optics, a BS in Physics, and a MS in Science Education. He has worked as an optical engineer, a physicist, and a physics instructor before coming to RIT to teach the technical side of imaging.
Ted Kinsman is one of the few active high-speed photographers able to photograph at times less than 1/1,000,000th of a second. That is faster than a speeding bullet. Recently, Kinsman’s work has expanded to the x-ray region of the spectrum where he continues to explore imagery for books and magazines. His work has appeared on The Discovery Channel, Crime Scene Investigations (CSI), The X-Files, South Park, The Tyra Banks Show, ABC, NBC, PBS, CBS and the British Broadcast Corporation.
Recently, he did work on The Frozen Planet series, and James Cameron’s Avatar movie.
In 2015, Kinsman won the National Science Foundation’s Imaging Science Contest with an x-ray image of a turtle with eggs. Kinsman’s work predominantly focuses on using images to teach science.
