Metro supports Max Alexander: ‘Illuminating Atoms’ at the Royal Albert Hall

04 November 2014
To celebrate the International Year of Crystallography, Illuminating Atoms presents a selection of photographs by Max Alexander all produced by Metro, portraying the inspirational work of crystallographers.

Crystallography is the science that examines the arrangement of atoms in solids and reveals the atomic structure of materials from minerals to viruses, underpinning many of the biggest scientific discoveries of the past 100 years, including the chemical structures of antibiotics and DNA.

Award-winning editorial and documentary photographer Alexander shows us through portrait and documentary photography, the life of scientists at the cutting edge of discovery, including some of the world class facilities they use.. This is Max Alexander's second exhibition at the Royal Albert Hall, the first being Explorers of the Universe in 2009.

In addition to the exhibition a talk and Q&A session ‘How Crystallography Changed the World’ with Professor Elspeth Garman is being hosted on Sunday 9 November.
