Gather on Dunbar High Street to see two Royal Photographic Society exhibitions projected onto the exterior of the John Muir Birthplace.
INTERNATIONAL IMAGES FOR SCIENCE
Communicating science and helping inspire a new generation of scientists and engineers is something that photography can do especially well. We live in a visual age, and great images can convey a strong message quickly and across barriers of culture or language. Supported by Siemens as part of the Curiosity Project, International Images for Science is a competition that attracted over 2300 entries from scientists, professional and amateur photographers as well as students at school and universities. The images that were selected have a common thread – they are all visually captivating yet each has a science story to tell. Most of all, the images show that good science images don’t always have to be the result of expensive equipment – a passion for the subject and the vision to capture it is often all that is required.
Conceived to help celebrate the International Year of Light 2015, Light Works celebrates the diverse ways in which light in all its forms impacts on our modern lives. It is a visual journey through the electromagnetic spectrum - starting with gamma rays and X-rays, through the ultraviolet to the visible, then on through infrared, terahertz and microwaves to radio waves. These 50 images also reveal to us the mysteries of the Universe around us and even of the world inside our bodies. Light Works was created by the Royal Photographic Society in partnership with the Science and Technology Facilities Council.
Thursday 10 to Sunday 13 March 6:30pm to 9pm each evening at John Muir Birthplace
