Adam Voorhes and Robin Finlay are partners—in more ways than one. Collectively known as The Voorhes, the husband-and-wife duo have produced the 10 most recent covers of Popular Science from their Austin, Texas, studio. For this issue, photographer Adam devised a custom lens kit to capture microscopic details of objects, like a zipper, shown in the “Small Wonders” series, which begins on page 60. Prop stylist Robin has brought past covers to life by crafting a cosmic clock and wrangling a movie-trained crow. For the issue you’re holding now, she coaxed live ants into the proper poses.
