Photo Exhibition Focus on Photosynthesis

Enter the hidden and captivating world of plants through a photographic exhibition that will open a window to the invisible world of photosynthesis. These images will take the viewer from the microscopic realm of the structures responsible of producing the oxygen we breathe, to the day to day life of plant scientists working to grow the crops of the future.
The images of this exhibition, are the result of a photographic competition organised by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis in 2017, aimed at telling the story of the Centre.
