5:00–7:00 p.m.
Marshall Fine Arts Center

The Cosmos viewed from Earth and Outer Space from 1949 to the Present

An exhibition of color photographs made from the Hubble Space Telescope will be included in the summer and fall exhibition in the Atrium Gallery. There will be 40 color images made from high definition files down loaded from the Hubble Telescope website and printed in the photography digital labs in the Marshall Fine Art Center. These images will be paired with a special collection of analog photographs of outer space housed in the Strawbridge Observatory at Haverford College. This collection known as the Palomar Sky Observatory set, is an ultra-rare set of special high-resolution silver gelatin plates made of the night sky (when it was still possible to see deep space before the high density light-pollution now present in the night skies over Southern California).

The pairing of these two sets of telescopic images made from the ground and from the sky presents a case study in the advances of photography from the analog to the digital age. The ability to see into deep space and to record what is observed there is a keystone of research, teaching, and learning about the origins of life and the cosmos. The addition of color and the incredible sharpness of the images from the Hubble Space Telescope have already been incredibly useful in exploring the outer limits of space.

Original prints from both sources are extraordinary for their intersection of photography and science. They are to the trained and untrained observer beautiful and mysterious.
