RIT Solicits Submissions for International Exhibition Featuring Science and Photography
Images from Science slated for fall 2008 opening
Two photography professors at Rochester Institute of Technology have got it down to a science following the success of the international exhibition of scientific photography, Images from Science, which traveled to seven different countries after its opening in 2002. Andrew Davidhazy, professor of imaging and photographic technology and Michael Peres, professor of biomedical photographic communications, in RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences, are organizing another traveling exhibit and catalogue to open in fall 2008. They are seeking submissions from around the world.
Images from Science 2008 will be a showcase of photographs made in the pursuit of scientific information. The submitted images must be created for the purpose of recording scientific and engineering research or images from other related fields such as oceanography, geology, biology, engineering, medicine, physics, or other related disciplines.
A panel of international judges will select images based on the photograph’s impact, the image’s aesthetics, the degree of difficulty in making the photograph as well as other related criteria. Contributors can submit up to four entries and must certify copyright ownership. All images must be submitted digitally. The entry deadline is Feb. 28, 2008, and there is no entry fee.
The exhibit will be on display in fall 2008 for several weeks after which it may be available to travel. For further submission details and to view all 58 photographs from the 2002 exhibition, visit http://images.rit.edu.
