See inside a human eye and get a microscopic look at a moth's wing as the Wellcome Image Awards return for a third year.

This year’s award-winning images include pathways of nerve fibres in the brain, the delicate colours in a head of maize leaves, and a digitally reconstructed skeleton showing atheroma, the 'furring up' of arteries that supply blood to the brain in someone who has had a stroke.

The 20 winning photographs have been selected from the thousands of images acquired by the Wellcome Library for their Wellcome Images collection. Since 2012, Wellcome have held these annual awards to highlight the work of clinical photographers, illustrators and images.

Explore the best in science image making, revealing the close-up and surreal within the biological and scientific world.
