From the publisher: "Catherine Wagner's photographs of the subjects and objects of science, from the most sophisticated DNA sequencing and radioactive cell growth -- to the most mundane -- beakers, flasks and fruit flies -- combine to reflect the impact of science on contemporary society. Catherine Wagner traveled to major laboratories across the United States, engaging with scientists to create her visual investigation of the exclusive world of scientific research. The resulting images offer the opportunity to encounter science in an innovative and unusual manner, as they bridge the distances between art, science and everyday life."
