UK Publication Date

Science and engineering research must be communicated within the research community and to the general public, and a crucial element of that communication is visual. In Envisioning Science, science photographer Felice Frankel provides a guide to creating dynamic and compelling photographs for journal submissions and scientific presentations to funding agencies, investors, and the general public. The book is organized from the large to small-from photographing laboratory equipment to capturing new material and biological structures at the microscopic level. Full-color illustrations including many side-by-side comparisons provide an extensive gallery of fine science photography.

The book begins with a brief historical overview in a foreword by science educator Phylis Morrison. Frankel discusses technical issues and, just as important, her personal approach to creating images that are both scientifically informational and accessible. This is a handbook that should become a standard tool in all research laboratories.

Here's what you say about us...

Felice C. Frankel is an award-winning science photographer whose photographs have appeared in many publications. A research scientist in the Department of Chemical Engineering at MIT, she is the author ofEnvisioning Science(MIT Press),No Small Matter(with G. M. Whitesides),On the Surface of Things (with G. M. Whitesides), andVisual Strategies(with Angela H. DePace). of the year's more intriguing concepts for an art book (or is it a science book?) It's a rare yin and yang concoction that satisfied both sides of the brain.


The words [in On the Surface of Things] are no less remarkable [than the photos], balancing weighty concepts from the laboratory with a literate tone as light and elegant as a spider's web. A wonderful achievement indeed.

-Scientific American

What's remarkable, especially since they haven't watered down the science, is how accessible the book is...We tend to think of surfaces as superficial, but for scientists surfaces are where things happen. Frankel shows us how beautiful those surfaces can be; Whitesides, how revelatory.


...a beautifully designed array of arresting images.
