Marvin Heiferman book celebrates the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing
Oliver Wasow, Women Selling Technology, 2018.


NEW YORK, NY.- Amidst the upcoming celebration of the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing, Seeing Science: How Photography Reveals the Universe is a timely publication on the important relationship between photography and science. The book presents an insightful and reader-friendly collection of essays and pictures about photography’s role in visualizing science and building human knowledge—from micro to macro and everything in between, including several essays on space exploration and the moon. Photography and science have long been intertwined, helping to shape the way we look at the world. Scientists use photography as a way to gather information, explore, and learn, but just as important, photography is also used to promote scientific advances and has long served as an interface between the sciences and the public. Our understanding of outer space depends on images sent to Earth from the Hubble Space Telescope, just as our understanding of our own bodies depends on photographic X-rays. Images make visible what lies beyond human perception.

Science is less an edifice of facts than a process of discovery and inquiry. In this way, it is not dissimilar to art; artists have engaged with some of the same scientific principles, using photography to imagine the world differently and present us with new experiences and ways of seeing. This book presents both perspectives exploring how science is made perceptible, featuring over three hundred images and sixty short texts. Together they engage readers in a timely exploration of the extent to which our knowledge is formed and transformed through our interactions with photographic imagery. Seeing Science: How Photography Reveals the Universe charts advances in scientific and visual literacy and explores the central role images play in helping us understand the evolution and impact of science and technology.

Marvin Heiferman creates projects about photography and visual culture for institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian Institution, International Center of Photography, Whitney Museum of American Art, New Museum, and Carnegie Museum of Art.

He is the author/editor of over two dozen books on visual culture, including Photography Changes Everything (Aperture/Smithsonian, 2012).
