Akihiro Shiroza’s training is in the area of zooplankton ecology, focusing on the early life history of fish. Shiroza is now combining his interests in science and art to create what he describes as “digital collages of multiple super-macro photographs of chemically treated larval fish, some magnified up to 200 times.” Shiroza’s work is currently on display at the International Game Fish Association headquarters in Dania Beach, Florida.
