Famed American photographer Ansel Adams once said, “ You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” There’s maybe no genre of photography where this rings more true than macro, the art of the extreme close up. Done right, everyday objects can be made to look beautifully surreal and even otherworldly.

In celebration of this, and of World Photography Day, we’re showcasing some of the Nothing but a Nokia Facebook group’s best macro shots, all taken on Nokia smartphones. So, sit back and prepare to look at the world in a very different way.
