The Lennart Nilsson Award is the world’s most prestigious distinction in scientific and medical photography, and is presented annually in honor of the legendary Swedish photographer. Like Lennart Nilsson, Kenneth Libbrecht has created images that communicate advanced research to the general public.
These pictures show real snow crystals that fell to earth in Northern Ontario, Alaska, Vermont, the Michigan Upper Peninsula, and the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. They were captured by Kenneth G. Libbrecht using a specially designed snowflake photomicroscope.
