Molecular biologist turned-photographer Prasenjeet Yadav combines his experience in research with his photography skills to highlight natural history and science stories in Asia. His work has taken him all over the globe, from studying the effects of climate change in the high elevation of the Himalayas to exploring the evolution of species in the Shola Sky Islands of the Western Ghats.
Specializing in photographing some of the smallest creatures on our planet, Anand Varma developed innovative techniques to capture stories such as the macabre existence of mind-controlling parasites as well as the complex world of the common honeybee. The details he captures are often invisible to the naked eye and expansive in the world that they reveal.
Join Arts Commons Presents and National Geographic Live to meet Prasenjeet Yadav and Anand Varma for stories and conversation on the intriguing intersection of science and photography. Together these natural history photographers draw on their scientific backgrounds to reveal wildlife and our natural world in surprising ways.
