Red, White, and Blue in Space Photography
The image above might look like something many Americans will see at a 4th of July fireworks display. They depict a single galaxy, named the Southern Pinwheel Galaxy, or Messier 83, processed in red, white, and blue. What is the significance of these colors? In the case of the American flag, the colors were originally not assigned any meaning at all and perhaps were chosen simply to mimic the colors of the British flag. It was only later, when the country adopted an official U.S. seal, that the colors were assigned meaning. “White signifies purity and innocence. Red, hardiness and valour, and Blue… signifies v...

Book Review Candid camera
The credit for inventing photography is complicated and contested. Nicéphore Niépce, Louis Daguerre, Henry Fox Talbot, and the scientific polymath John Herschel each have a claim. The term itself (from the Greek for "drawing with light") seems to have been coined in 1839 by Herschel. However, there can be little doubt that Fox Talbot—the subject of a new exhibition at London's Science Museum—was the key pioneer. A thought-provoking mixture of technology and art, the exhibition displays numerous images taken by Fox Talbot and several contemporary photographers who adopted his calotype process.

Early computers as objets d’art
Eye-catching design didn’t begin with Apple, as a new, digitally-aided photography series illustrates“Dials and buttons, knobs and switches; they’re very charming,” says James Ball, the digital art director behind a new photography series called Guide to Computing, which celebrates early computers. Ball, who works under the pseudonym Docubyte, began the project after developing a fascination and affection for such retro devices.“It’s rare now to find any machine that you can touch and interact with,” he says. “Computers now are all touch screens, slick and super-slim.” Ball feels that computers that pre-d...

Microsculpture: hidden beauty of the bugs beneath our feet
When photographer Levon Biss turned his lens on the insects his son was collecting in the garden, it opened up a miniature world in which art meets science to dazzling effectTwo years ago, exhausted by the frantic pressures of commercial portraiture, photographer Levon Biss was searching for a way to relax. His son Sebastian, then six, found the answer in their back garden. “My boy likes insects,” says Biss. “He’s always in the garden trying to find them and play with them. I started shooting insects he’d caught, so that he could see them clearly and be proud of finding them.” Making detailed portraits of insec...

See Animal Specimens in Stereoscopic 3D Photos
They sit in the storage rooms of grand museums, guarded remains of once-living creatures now frozen in time. They almost seem alive, skeleton frames posing behind a plate a glass: The spider monkey looks impish; the Atlantic Octopus enlarges in rage; the Juvenile Chimpanzee hunches over like an old man; while the Leafy Sea Dragon coyly flaunts its fins. “It’s interesting how skeletons and specimens in fluid can retain or reflect a character,” photographer Jim Naughten tells TIME. Naughten’s Animal Kingdom, currently on show at Klompching Gallery in New York, has been described as an attempt to rean...

What’s happening at the National Media Museum isn’t vandalism. It’s a fresh start | Mary Archer
The Science Museum Group’s trustees have thought hard about securing a bright future for the museum – and moving part of its photography collection simply makes senseThe planned move of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) collection to the Victoria and Albert Museum has generated much heated comment and soul-searching about the north-south divide. Yet the novelist JB Priestley, of whom there is a striking statue outside the National Media Museum, remarked that he had “always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start” and that is precisely what is now dawning at the museum.The tale of...

The Incredible Thing Photography Can Do For Your Aging Brain
When it comes to keeping your mind sharp as you age, a new study says to "use it or lose it." New research from the University of Texas at Dallas found that it's important in old age to exercise your brain by taking up new and challenging hobbies. Just as exercise is vital for keeping your body in running condition, researchers say that complex activities are needed to keep the brain in tip-top shape. Researchers studied 39 participants over a 14-week period to examine the effects various types of activities had on brain function. After undergoing MRI scans to measure brain activity at the beginning and en...

See the First Photo Ever Taken in Space Colorized
69 years ago, on October 24, 1946, a V-2 missile fitted with a 35mm camera took the first ever photo from space. The grainy, black and white photo was, at the time, considered revolutionary. It was the first time humanity saw Earth in the context of the vast, empty space. Now, as we celebrate Space Week, TIME asked artist and photo editor Sanna Dullaway to colorize the historic photograph. The eerie image offers a new look at the history of space photography. Read more about the history of the first photo taken in space here.

Unique Birth Photography Shows How Babies Fit Inside Their Mothers' Wombs
Dutch birth photographer Marry Fermont has a unique approach to documenting delivery. In addition to taking the traditional images of parents holding their newborns for the first time, she also likes to photograph babies posing the way they were positioned in utero. "When I photographed my first birth, the midwife showed the parents how the baby was positioned in the womb," Fermont told The Huffington Post, adding that both she and the parents loved getting this perspective. "You see the baby coming out, but once they're out, it’s so hard to imagine that they were ever inside of you. This gives you a little...

New Images Show Pluto’s Surprising Terrain
The new images of Pluto downloaded by the New Horizons spacecraft show that the dwarf planet is far more varied and complex than NASA had expected. After receiving and releasing initial images from the spacecraft’s July 14 flyby, NASA began a yearlong downlinking process to acquire all of the data and high resolution photography from New Horizons, according to a press release. These photographs with more detail reveal unexpected terrain diversity, such as ice flows seemingly cascading from mountains into plains, as well as what appear to be dunes. “Pluto is showing us a diversity of landforms and complexity of ...

Terry Virts knows he’s lucky. The American astronaut recently returned from nearly seven months on the International Space Station, his second trip to space, which ended up lasting longer than expected. Virts, along with Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov and Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, was forced to stay board the Space Station for an additional month after an arriving Russian cargo vessel malfunctioned in April and later burned up in the atmosphere. During their 199 days in space, they conducted hundreds of scientific experiments and went on three spacewalks. Back on the ground after his return on Jun...

These Haunting Paintings Show What Hawaii's Volcanoes Looked Like Before Color Photography
Jules Tavernier, "An Eruption," late 1880s We've all heard of the Hudson River School and the Barbizon School, but how about the Volcano School? In the 1880s and 1890s, Mauna Loa -- Hawaii's biggest volcano -- kicked off an eruption that brought lava closer to the town of Hilo than ever before. Hawaii residents and tourists alike flocked to the Big Island for a chance to see the eerie orange glow over the city of Hilo, and -- in the days before color photography -- painters were among the most eager to witness and recreate the explosive lava plumes and vibrant flows. Painters such as Jules Tavernier, Charles Furneau...

An Explorer's Lessons On Happiness, Photography, And Greeting Whales
"People joke that I went straight from the ocean into the air and skipped land," Eric Cheng says. But the joke isn't totally accurate. Land is where Cheng obtained his two computer science degrees at Stanford, and where he trained as a concert cellist. It's where he developed a passion for pursuits that are creative and also highly technical. After that, it's true, Cheng did start spending a lot of time with sharks and whales. He left an unfulfilling startup job, taught himself the complex workings of underwater photography, and improvised a career around his expertise.
