Inside the Looking Lens: The Art and Science of Photography

Begins 18 November 2000

Explore the science of light, the technology of the camera, and the role of photography in art and science. Through engaging hands-on activities, visitors will explore photography from process to product. Visitors are invited to stand frozen on a photosensitive wall and watch their images crystallize in light or jump inside the giant camera obscura and see their image upside down and backward. In addition to the choreography of light and technology, this new exhibit encourages an appreciation for the art of photography. Children can visit the film store, select their tools, and return to the darkroom to develop a photograph. A computer program also allows visitors to compose their own photographs as they blend light, temperature and time with the skill of a professional.
