October 4, 2021

Michael Peres lectureMichael Peres, an award-winning photo educator, author and science photographer in the School of Photographic Art and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology will be presenting at the NIU School of Art and Design, Thursday, October 7 on “Images Within Images.”

The presentation is in conjunction with the exhibition, “IMAGES from SCIENCE 3” open now through November 17 in the Jack Olson Gallery in NIU’s Jack Arends Hall, the Visual Arts Building on the main campus.

Peres has dedicated himself to exploring the field of biomedical photography and imaging and inspiring generations of curious students, many of who have become scientists, teachers, physicians and leaders in their chosen fields.

Science images are created to display verisimilitude and reveal empirical information from often not visible subjects. when science images are viewed outside the discipline from which they were created, they often take another dimension and can be fascinating for different reasons. This talk will explore the duality of images that feature science and how these images can become beautiful or even inspiring images when looking at unseen and invisible worlds using a different point of view.

The lecture will be held at 5 p.m. in room AB 102 of Jack Arends Hall. It will also be live streamed on Zoom. Meeting ID: 842 7745 9237, passcode: 88000, zoom.us.
