Experience the photography exhibition: An Eye for Science

Published: 04 May 2023

How do we take stock of life on earth? How do we take care of the tiniest farm workers? How can we protect our fishes? And just what is the most dangerous animal for humans?

The photography exhibition An Eye for Science shows some examples of how SLU takes on fundamental issues that affect all of us.

The hunt for interesting and aesthetic photographs of SLU's activities, with high photographic quality, began in autumn. Eleven fascinating photos were selected along with eleven stories. The Division of Communication worked together with researchers and writers to realise these stories in articles about what is behind each photograph. And so An Eye for Science took shape – eleven large photographs printed on backlit displays with accompanying text and a website with more photographs and texts.

The exhibition will be shown at some major events organised by SLU during 2023 and to visitors, employees, and students at several of SLU's locations.

The exhibition will be displayed 9 May–31 October
