The hidden face of science

Science is by no means a cold and disinterested activity. It is something done by real people, with passion and devotion, involving trial and error and happy accidents. The contemporary practice of scientific research is revealed in the 680 works that were submitted by scientists in Switzerland to the 2020 and 2021 editions of the SNSF Scientific Image Competition.

The Biel/Bienne Festival of Photography is exhibiting a selection of the works that were awarded prizes by the jury and those chosen by popular vote, along with an electronic music piece set to scientific images and videos, presented by Witold Langlois, founder and curator of METEO.

The awards ceremony and a guided tour of the exhibition with the makers of the images, will take place on Thursday, May 20 at 4 pm.

In cooperation with the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
