For this last article on this weeks-long series on Meat, I’m going to take you on a tour the likes of which you’ve never seen before.
You may never look at a piece of meat the same way ever, ever again.
These are macrophotographs of various popular meat products. These photographs come courtesy of photographer Mike Adams, who used a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera with a high-end macrophotography lens and an expensive flash unit to capture the intricate detail shown in the photos.
Adams went to a big box store and bought some packages of popular processed meat products, and then started clicking away.
Below are his photos. Keep in mind that none of these photos are photoshopped.
