Middlesex student Laura Bissett has completed an unusual photography project made up of micro close up images of skin.

The photos taken of the skin of three generations of her family, including herself (21), her mum, dad and nan (79), were submitted as her final year project in her photography degree.  The black and white photos were taken so closely that the images appear abstract and viewers are often unable to distinguish what they are. 

Laura was inspired to complete the project due to her interest in how limbs move and hadn’t seen anything similar to her idea. Laura Bissett 2

Middlesex University student Laura Bissett said: “I’m excited by the positive reception of my collection, and most importantly I’m pleased the idea of the project has interested people and succeeded in getting people to look further. The images successfully cause intrigue and fascination, with viewers spending time looking at them and wanting to know what they are.”  

Laura, who graduated from Middlesex University last month, wants to continue to photograph bodies and combine this with her passion for music in the future.
