Classically a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the camera sensor is equal or greater than the life size.
However this gallery will focus on macro photography in a much larger sense, including close-up and proxy macro. I would even abusively call macro here any picture of relative small animals, no matter its size in the picture.
As I mention it briefly in my About page, my goal is not to do documentary work here, but to emphasis the subject through an artistic composition, whether abstract or real. Even better if I manage to make generally unloved creatures a bit less scary or disgusting to some people.
