Proof: The Intersection of Science, Art and Photography

The images in this exhibition, which span more than 150 years, blur the distinction between science and art photography. Objective and descriptive photographs of nature, space, or phenomena can be interesting to look at. A few, however, transcend their original intent and take on an aesthetic character that can be appreciated in purely artistic terms: an enlargement of a chemical compound appears to be Suprematist composition, an astronaut floating in space becomes Pop art, a motion study of an athlete resembles Futurist photography, a star cluster and nuclear fission represent Minimalist creations.
