World's first 'invisible' photography exhibition to open in the UK

Dotography: The World's First Invisible Photography Exhibition


A unique exhibition of images that are each the width of a single human hair is set to open in the City of Birmingham on the 24th of January.

Dotography: The World's First Invisible Photography Exhibition will feature a unique gallery of images printed using state-of-the-art nanotechnology, meaning they are completely invisible to the human eye.

Among the 22 pictures on display throughout the gallery space are a number of iconic photographs that celebrate landmark moments from the world of STEM: including Marie Curie at work in her laboratory in 1900, Albert Einstein with fellow theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer in 1950 and Neil Armstrong taking mankind’s first ever steps on the Moon in 1969.

The exhibition aims to inspire young people to consider a future in STEM and is curated by The Big Bang Fair. The images have been developed alongside nanotechnology experts Scrona - who use gold nanoparticles to print super-sharp and detailed pictures to an incredibly small scale, comparable to the diameter of a single human hair.

The exhibition is located on Link Street in Birmingham and will run for four days between Wednesday 24th and Saturday 27th January. Entry is completely free.
