Kelley Wilder now provides a primer on the remarkably fruitful applications of photography to science, as she explores the multiple facets of this complex relationship. Kelley Wilder draws upon her extensive background in alternative process photography, museum practice, art history, and history of science to produce a wide-ranging and illuminating investigation into the intersection of photography and science.

In stock on October 24, 2018. Considering the cover photo and title, I thought this would be about scientific photography in modern times, but it is actually the history of how photography and science grew together, and their interactions with each other. There is a heavy emphasis on how, why and whether we can trust photography as a way of revealing truth with the rigor we associate with science. And strictly speaking it's not just about camera photography, but also the use of alternative techniques, such as photograms and x-rays.

But science also borrowed from photography - scientists relied on photography's ability to capture .

But science also borrowed from photography - scientists relied on photography's ability to capture experimental results that would otherwise be impossible to record, and the resulting images helped to mould the early public perception of science in many crucial ways. Kelley Wilder tackles the thorny debate over photography's 'success' in the sciences, its use in practical fields like medicine (the X-ray), and the relationship of scientific theory to art practice.

Photography and Science describes how photography first established its legitimacy through close association with key scientific ideas and practices, such as objectivity, observation, archiving and experimentation. Wilder then charts how photography returned the favour by serving as a powerful influence in various scientific disciplines, such as biology and astronomy.

Sharing The beauty of Gods creation through the lens of my camera.

How do we know what an amoeba looks like? How can doctors see the details of our skeletons and internal organs? What enables us to see an exploding star in another galaxy? All of these things are made possible through the innovations of photography. Kelley Wilder now provides a primer on the remarkably fruitful applications of photography to science, as she explores the multiple facets of this complex relationship.Kelley Wilder draws upon her extensive background in alternative process photography, museum practice, art history, and history of science to produce a wide-ranging and illuminating investigation into the intersection of photography and science. Photography and Science describes how photography first established its legitimacy through its close association with key scientific ideas and practices, such as objectivity, observation, archiving, and experimentation. Wilder then charts how photography returned the favor by serving as a powerful influence in various scientific disciplines, such as biology and astronomy.  The book digs into the controversial debates over photography’s “success” in the sciences, its use in practical fields such as medical imaging and x-raying, and the complicated relationship between scientific theory and art practice.Augmenting this fascinating study are eighty photographs of scientific subjects and experiments, many of which are published here for the first time. A thought-provoking, broad-based examination, Photography and Science will be an essential addition to the bookshelves of scientists, photographers, and art historians alike.

Not what I was expecting, but excellent nonetheless...

Considering the cover photo and title, I thought this would be about scientific photography in modern times, but it is actually the history of how photography and science grew together, and their interactions with each other. There is a heavy emphasis on how, why and whether we can trust photography as a way of revealing truth with the rigor we associate with science. And strictly speaking it's not just about camera photography, but also the use of alternative techniques, such as photograms and x-rays.

As an example of the storytelling, there is a particularly interesting recounting of the technological challenges and difficulties that transpired in the photography of the transit of Venus in 1874.

I found the writing engaging and the book ended leaving me ready for more. In, fact, my only disappointment is that there is relatively little said about recent photography and science-related imaging work, post 2000, although the book is copyright 2009.

I would highly recommend this book to photographers, historians, and scientists.

Good Book. I will explain more when I take the class.
