A selection of images from The Royal Photographic Society's International Images for Science 2013 exhibition will be shown at Settle's unique Gallery on the Green during May and June. This exhibition shows images produced by scientists to support their work and from photographers showing where and how science is conducted. Many of the images combine elements of both science and art.
The fascinating selection include images on all scales, from those taken with the aid of an electron microscope to astronomical images of the stars. A number of very specialised techniques have been used, including time-lapse photography, magnetic resonance imaging, 3D reconstructed imaging and high speed photography.This huge variety of photography allows us to explore worlds where such images are used as everyday tools in medicine, engineering and many other fields. They do this in a way that can inform, question, or simply inspire.
The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) was formed in 1853 to promote the art and science of photography, a mission it continues today. This is the second international exhibition of images of science. The first one was in 2011 and its images are now archived at the National Media Museum, Bradford.
The exhibition, entitled “Hidden Worlds”, will run from 26 April to 28 June 2014.
