A Gallery For Fine Photography, presents
the original photographs of
Dr. Harold E. Edgerton
Harold E. Edgerton (1903, Fremont, Nebrasca – 1990, Boston), professor at MIT, is the inventor of the electronic flash. He was also a photographer. Harold Edgerton devoted his career to recording what the unaided eye cannot see. His photographs illustrate such moments as: a bullet seen the instant it explodes through an apple or a perfect coronet formed by a milk-drop splash. These photographs have become classics of modern art and science.
Dr. Harold Edgerton was the first to take high-speed color photographs and was a pioneer of multiflash and microsecond imagery, which he used to take detailed photographs of humming birds in motion, as well as the progression of athletes' movements. These wondrous images have shown nobody was never able to see before in photographs that are as remarkable for their precision as for their beauty.
