Photography itself was born out of passionate engagement between art and science. The medium's pioneers were inventors, scientists, and mathematicians. The results of their intellectual endeavors dramatically affected the art form and forged a reciprocal relationship between art and science in photography that has continued to this day. This exhibition offers a rich and extensive view of the scientific studies done by three photography greats Eadweard Muybridge, Berenice Abbott, and Harold Edgerton. Each of these artists invented devices to study and represent aspects of light and motion scientifically and photographically.
