Flora and fauna comes alive in this spellbinding exhibition. The Scottish artist revels in photographic techniques that create awe-inspiring images of birds in flights, buds opening in bloom and butterfles resting on blossom. His lenticular prints create incredible depth with mesmerising effects and his photogram’s add a splash of Technicolor to the normally monochromatic results.
Expansive European and American vistas are reduced to perplexingly detailed images by this remarkable aerial photographer who uses a Cessna 182 carbon fibre aeroplane to get the perfect birds eye view of the world.
This exhibition (intriguingly hosted by the Science Museum in its new Media Space on the second floor) shows work by two photographers fascinated by the eccentricities of English social customs.
A remote island in the Åland archipelago comes alive in this Finnish artist’s photographs that superimpose images of the same location throughout the seasons.

If you want to see the beauty of a boarded-up building or the austere grace of a windowframe, Harry Callahan’s your man. A master of multiple exposure (many of the photographs here are layered with ghost images), Callahan was also capable of disconcerting concentration on objects that most people wouldn’t bother to call subjects – a lamppost, a flagpole, a Florentine alleyway.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning photographers in this show have the ability to capture blink-of-an-eye moments creating timeless and significant documents of our cultural and political history.
