The British Royal Photographic Society was founded in 1853. The main goal of its creators is the development of the art of photography and its new technologies. In 2011 and 2013, the first two international exhibitions of unique photographic images from the field of medicine, forensic science, archeology, mechanical engineering, oceanography and other fields of science were held.
The next, already the third exhibition is to take place this year, where 100 unique photographs will be presented, which will undoubtedly arouse great interest. The exhibition will take place in Manchester, Edinburgh, Cheltenham and at the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
As the director of the Royal Photographic Society, Dr. Michael Pritchard, stated:
“Photography and specialized imaging techniques are of great importance to scientists. Some of the images are reminiscent of illustrations from science fiction novels, but in fact they are the reality of our daily life.
The photo shows a soap bubble at the moment when it was poked with a finger
And this is a 3D X-ray image of the skull of a hammerhead shark.
Photo of the Andromeda galaxy, which is located from the Earth at a distance of 2.5 million light years. Image taken with a small telescope and a standard digital camera
And these bizarre stars on a blue background, reminiscent of Van Gogh's Starry Night, are nothing more than a microscopic image of hydrangea leaves
Isn't it true that this image resembles spaghetti covered with a net. In fact, this is the structure of an adhesive plaster, enlarged several times under a microscope.
