Focus on Photosynthesis opens our eyes to the hidden, fascinating world of plant research. It reveals the intriguing world of photosynthesis, taking the viewer from the microscopic realm inside leaves to the hot, humid sorghum fields of Queensland.

The images of this exhibition, are the result of a photographic competition organised by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis, aimed at telling the story of the Centre, showing the people behind the Centre’s research and sparking people’s curiosity in plant science and photosynthesis.

The exhibition contains the 15 finalists of the competition, printed in a large format as well as some added series submitted to the competition. The images were selected based on their impact and storytelling properties. Some of the images were produced for purely scientific purposes, but when taken out of that context they became intriguing and striking images, that capture the attention of a much wider audience.
