Are these images a view of the Amazon Basin, a dissection table for research on a captured alien or the solution to a vein mystery? Explore the intriguing world of plant research through photographs that will take you from the microscopic realm inside leaves to the hot, humid sorghum fields of Queensland. The images of this exhibition are the result of an internal photo competition organised by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis.

The aim of the photographic exhibition is to tell the story of the Centre, showing the people behind the Centre’s research and sparking people’s curiosity in plant science and photosynthesis. Enter the day-to-day life of plant scientists and hear directly from the researchers and photographers why plant research is everything but boring, and how they are helping to grow better crops to be able to feed the world’s population while dealing with the challenges of climate change.

The exhibition focuses on the most important, but imperceptible, biological process on Earth: photosynthesis. The images will be accompanied by displays and interactive activities to showcase the tools and creative ideas that explain why plant scientists are change makers for agriculture.
