Revelations: Experiments in Photography is a book published in tandem with an exhibition of the same name held at the Media Space Gallery in Londons Science Museum from March 20 to September 13, 2015. Rather than serving as an exhibition catalogue of the images on display, the book is more accurately a series of comprehensive essays of how scientific photography has influenced modern art and continues to influence contemporary art.
Revelations developed from the idea of photographys ability to give form to the intangible. The photographs contained within Revelations are absolutely fascinating in details, showing us works that are astronomically distant and microscopically small. The scope of work explored in Revelations spans from the 19th century pioneering experiments by William Henry Fox Talbot, through strobed tool tossing by Bernice Abbott, to contemporary photographs such as the exploding potpourri of frozen flowers by Ori Gerst and gun barrel ejections by Sarah Pickering.
