Visitors will be able to view the world around them through a scientific lens in a playful yet illuminating study of everyday materials, from the structure of soap bubbles to the crystallisation of Aperol (of ‘spritz’ fame) and even the unexpected formations of face cream. The exhibition will also shed light on some of the more serious questions for which we look to science for answers, through thought-provoking images exploring human health, environmental conservation and the protection of endangered wildlife.

The images on display have been captured using a range of modern technologies. From digital telescopes and the latest medical imaging equipment to the everyday smartphone, the exhibition showcases rare scientific phenomena as well as the science that affects our everyday lives.

The shortlist, decided by an expert panel of judges including the Science Museum’s Science Director, Roger Highfield, TV Presenter Dallas Campbell, Artist Zoe Laughlin and Medical Imaging Expert Catherine Draycott, was announced earlier today by the Royal Photographic Society.

The winning photographs will be unveiled at an event at the Science Museum in October 2019 to coincide with the launch of the exhibition.
