Wang says she first began taking photomicrographs of snowflakes, and a hobby grew from there when she realized how many fascinating structures she could find under the microscope. At her work she deals with the vast expanses of space--she's a screenwriter for the Beijing Planetarium
--but she keeps returning to the small.
Wang has taken many pictures of crystals that show up in our daily lives, like salt and vinegar. "Crystallized soy sauce is the one that give us a pleasant surprise," Wang says. "The shape of its crystal have a great variety, depending on the size and density of the droplet. The picture I sent to Nikon Small World is the most interesting one. As you can see, it looks like human face. I didn't expect this interesting structure before we took photos."
