Photo images of the detail from Josh Simpson Planets,
seen through the macro lens of Pia Davis.

"Josh Simpson has had a lifetime fascination with satellite photographs of the moon, the earth and other planets, as well as with the aquatic underworld. These have been a driving force behind his beautiful glass planets, with their secret universes and mysterious landscapes. Josh lives and works in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, and his work is exhibited across the world. Josh Simpson's glass planets offer magical views of villages, landscapes, underwater treasures, continents, moons and new worlds, inviting our imagination and our soul to explore new vistas and experiences. These macro views of his planets provide us with an emotional journey, surrounded by a fascinating interplay of light, color, texture, surprise and delight." - Pia Davis
