Nikon recently fashioned with renowned macro photographer Alberto Ghizzi Panizza on a project to show the hidden beauty of rust.
During the project Alberto acclimatized specialist macro Nikkor lenses including the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/3.5G ED VR, AF-S VR Micro NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED, AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR is the brand of lenses produced by Nikon Corporation, including camera lenses for the Nikon F-mount 40mm f/2.8G and AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED.
The sculptures were made in Bilkyrkogården Kyrkö Mosse junkyard, a car cemetery in Sweden. Commenting on his experience, Alberto Ghizzi Panizza implied, "In macro photography you are always looking for interesting colours and textures, so for me, Bilkyrkogården Kyrkö Mosse was a wonderland. The Micro NIKKOR lenses allowed me to apprehend, in crisp detail, the 60-year battle between the abandoned cars and mother nature trying to reclaim her forest once again. The four lenses I acclimated to for this shoot were critical to enable me to get closer to the action and reveal the ‘beauty of rust’ in a way never seen before."
