 Scientist's Pollen Pics May Help Hayfever Patients Face the Invisible Enemy

He said his work, a mixture of science and art, aims to "show a hidden but unimaginably beautiful realm of our planet".

The pollen is covered in gold, fixed to a slide and put into an airless chamber to be "photographed".

As omages come out in shades of grey, Martin colours the pictures himself on a computer.

"To take 10 images of one item takes two days - it makes these pictures unique," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
