The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is hosting the “Atomic STEaM Photography Show,” a special photo art exhibit, on display from November 8, 2014, through January 4, 2015.
Individuals, both local and from all over the world, shared their photographic talent and eye for everything science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEaM), and a select number of photographs were chosen through the juried competition to be displayed at the nationally accredited, Smithsonian affiliated Museum.
Winners were announced at the November 7 special preview reception, and individuals from all over the nation where recognized. First place went to Brittany Markward of Albuquerque, NM, for her photo titled “Wave Function.” Second place went to Jeanine Michna of Dallas, TX, for her photo titled “Overpressure| Interior Entrance; graph from 'Theoretical Consequences of a Hypothetical Nuclear Bombing of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Area, 1963'.” Third place went to Wes Agresta of Argonne, IL, for his photo titled “Reacting Nuclear Meltdowns.” Jonah Calinawan of Baltimore, MD, and his photo titled “Shouldering Sky;” Diane Doty of Lubbock, TX, and her photo titled “Path of the Sun, Recover Time;” and Becky Ramotowski of Tijeras, NM, and her photo titled “International Space Station” all received Honorable Mention.
Other photos selected to show in the exhibit came from as far away as Zurich, Switzerland, and range from the literal engineering feats of the John B. Robert Dam located in Albuquerque, to the abstract interpretation of science as seen through morning dew drops resting on an elaborate spider’s web.
Any individual, from a professional photographer to a student with a camera phone, were invited to submit a photograph to the “Atomic STEaM Photography Competition” with the hope to not only win a cash prize but to also have their work on display at the Museum. All photographs submitted relate in some way to overall theme of science, technology, engineering, art or mathematics, and they were all open to interpretation by the photographer.
“Atomic STEaM Photography Show” is included in the price of admission to the Museum.
The exclusive presenting sponsor for the “Atomic STEaM Photography Show” is ATK Aerospace.
