Seeing Science: Photography, Science and Visual Culture

We originally featured this resource in the 8-27-2018 Scout Report, and it remains a fascinating project for those interested in the intersection between photography and science to explore. Seeing Science: Photography, Science and Visual Culture offers readers an exploration of "the central role photographic images play in [...] furthering science and how photographic images made in and about the sciences impact public opinion, policy and funding, science education, as well as visual and popular culture." Here, readers will find a wealth of content, including a timeline detailing the development of photography, a collection of short essays on topics like "Science Photography and the Art Museum," and a gallery of photographs grouped into science themes (for example, artificial biospheres and celebrity scientists). Created as a year-long project in 2016-2017, Seeing Science was produced and curated by Marvin Heiferman, Visiting Senior Research Scholar at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC), with art direction by Kelley Bell, Associate Professor of Graphic Design at UMBC.
