Linden Gledhill is an artist who explores the physical world at different image scales and fragments of time. His education in science has led to the use of advanced microscopy and high speed equipment to create unexpected imagery revealing the physical beauty which surrounds us.
A passion for photography has led to numerous collaborations with other artists and designers resulting in promotional art work and effective advertisement campaigns. His work can be found in a wide range of products including books, snow boards, record sleeves, promotional video and apparel. Corporate clients included ExxonMobil, GMC, Canon, British Telecom and musicians such as Ryan Teague and Jon Hopkins. In addition, an extensive selection of archive images are available for licensing and printing and can be viewed at Flickr.com.
Linden is always looking to collaborate on projects which can utilize his scientific expertise. The types of collaborations are always flexible and can range form standard macro photography to the creation of special effects for stills and video. His expertise also enables him to build one off equipment for specific application. He has access to a wide range of equipment including microscopes, focus stacking rails and high speed trigger systems. A robot microscope stage with automated focus stacking allows capture of gigapixel images which can be printed to any size and still retain resolution. Collaborations with Cognisys, who specialize in photographic systems, have resulted in advances in photographic equipment including the invention of "StackShot" a fully automated macro-focusing rail.
