The evolution of photography has been inextricably bound up with the field of astronomy. Since photography’s earliest days, it has been used as a tool to advance astronomical observation and thought, yielding some of the most curious and compelling images in the medium’s history. Featuring works by a diversity of makers ranging from pioneering scientists to artists and amateurs, this exhibition surveys mankind’s ongoing efforts to chart and understand an expanding universe.
