Despite all the politics behind her work, her intricate illustrations are without a doubt fascinating and beautiful.

Sprung from one of histories most prominent catastrophe’s is a perfect marriage of science and art shown in the works of scientific illustrator Cornelia Hesse-Honegger. Since Chernobyl disaster in 1986, Hesse-Honegger has collected, studied and painted morphologically disturbed insects, which she finds in the fallout areas of Chernobyl as well as near nuclear installations. Clearly her findings that the radioactivity affected the health and development of the leaf bugs she was researching was highly controversial at the time. Many scientist and worst of all governments have disregarded her research totally, denying that low-level exposure to radioactivity has any effect on health.
