Edgerton Harold
Seeing the Unseen. Steidl, 2019. Harold Edgerton was an engineer, educator, explorer, entrepreneur, as well as a groundbreaking photographer - in the words of his former student and Life photographer Gjon Mili, "an American original". Edgerton's photographs combine exceptional engineering talent with aesthetic sensibility, and this book presents over 100 of his most exemplary works. "Seeing the Unseen" contains iconic photos of beloved milk drops and bullets slicing through fruit and cards, to lesser-known but equally fascinating images of sea creatures and sporting figures in action. Combined with excerpts from Edgerton's laboratory notebooks, the book reveals the full range of his technical virtuosity and enthusiasm for the natural and human worlds. Essays by Edgerton's students and collaborators J. Kim Vandiver and Gus Kayafas explore his approach to photography, engineering and education, while MIT curators Gary Van Zante and Deborah Douglas examine his importance in the history of photography, technology and modern culture; co-edited with the MIT Museum, Cambridge, Massachusetts, b&w and color photos.
