About this book

This handsomely illustrated book presents a pioneering collection of photographs of science subjects that raise questions about catastrophe theory, human evolution and behaviour, the nature of matter, and the place of our planet in the universe. The contributors to this volume, leading experts in the history of photography and scientific photography, consider the history of these images, their technical genesis, and the questions of representation they inspire.
