Revelations: Experiments in Photography reveals the enormous influence of early scientific photography on modern and contemporary photographic art. Nineteenth-century pioneers harnessed a tool to represent phenomena indiscernible to the naked eye. Their work depicted the astronomically distant and microscopically small, revealed the nuances of rapid motion, and lent form to invisible energy sources. It also provided visual art with a radically new set of forms and techniques. Produced to accompany a major exhibition, this book investigates the meanings artists and curators have invested in the early experiments, and what their work exposes about changing popular perceptions of science and technology.
