On display, the Winners of the Science Photographer of the Year
#Exhibitions

From outer-space to the mysteries of matter, from the depths of the human body to the infinite forms of life, the show that is science is ready to hit the stage. It’s a high-level performance, guaranteed by the direction of the Royal Society of Photography. With 70 images which defy indifference, the Science Photographer of the Year returns. They were taken with digital radio-telescopes and sophisticated medical imaging equipment, but also with simple - ok, not that simple - smartphones. For visitors to the Science Museum, a gift of a new point of view on quotidian reality, surprising views of the invisible world, visions of rare scientific phenomenon. And then there are answers to common questions we often ask of scientists - engaging shots exploring human health, environmental protection and animals risking extinction. “Since it’s beginnings, science has been part of photography. Now photography has been integrated into scientific work and in the communication of science to a vast audience,” said the coordinator of the RPS Science Exhibition Gary Evans, “the images of this exhibition were chosen for their creativity, originality and technical excellence. We are sure that they will intrigue and educate visitors in equal measure.”
