Macro/Micro showcases Jay McDonald’s unique photography, which includes close-ups of small scale subjects (an ant, dry and cracking earth, the petals of a flower) and big picture landscapes (the Australian Outback, old buildings.) With careful attention to the direction of light, the scale of the subject, and the composition of colors, McDonald depicts the unique beauty of each subject he turns his eye towards.

By looking at both the micro and macro subject alongside one another, the viewer is able to witness the parallels between a man and a tree, an abandoned building and the petal of a flower. With close observation of the lines and shapes created by McDonald’s photography, one can begin to better understand that art is truly all around–present within both large structures and miniscule organisms.
