Photographic Exhibition

Passion for Knowledge 2016 presents "The colour of the Fifties" by Martin KARPLUS.

The exhibition will be held at the San Sebastián Aquarium from September 26th to November 20th. The photographs will be on display in the T Room of the Aquarium, access to which is included in the general entrance ticket. The photographs show the inquiring mind and profoundly humanist vision of a young man who would later become a world-famous scientist.

This exhibition first shown at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, is comprised of about a hundred of images selected from among the thousands of photographs taken by Nobel Laureate Prof. Martin Karplus, during the period 1953-1965. The original Kodachrome Leica slides, many of which are now over 50 years old, were scanned by a master craftsman, and the exhibition prints were made from these images.
