Inside Information - Imaging the Human Body

Images of the interior of the human body produced by some of the world’s finest scientific image-makers. 
The stunning full-colour images in the exhibition have been selected for their aesthetic qualities as well as for their scientific information content. Fifty images are presented as back-lit slides in specially constructed wall-mounted light boxes and one free standing pillar.

The exhibition is based on a book by William A. Ewing (Thames and Hudson 1996).
