Science Photo Library Images in 2 Exhibits

Posted on 5/27/2008 by Julia Dudnik Stern | Printable Version | Comments (1)

This summer, images from the collection of London-based Science Photo Library will be on view in two exhibits.

"From Earth to the Universe" celebrates astronomy's contributions to society and culture. Co-sponsored by SPL and Astronet4, the exhibit is part of the forthcoming festivities of the International Year of Astronomy (2009). It will take place June 7- 29 at Albert Dock, Liverpool, England.

From June 9-July 13, London's Royal Albert Hall will host "Counterpoint," an exhibit that will pair images that exemplify the musical concept of counterpoint, which stands for the relationship between two or more voices that are independent in contour and rhythm, yet interdependent in harmony. For example, SPL-represented images of the Mandrill, a baboon-like primate photographed by Toni Angermayer, and a magnetic field by Cordelia Molloy will be displayed side by side.

    Hi Julie:

    Just FYI the Mandrill image is represented by Photo Researchers a US based agency that celebrated fifty years in business last year. SPL represents our images in the UK and we have represented them in the US since 1981. We have never been mentioned in Selling Stock except to be consistently added to the list of agents who make less than 5 million a year..... I guess we are not very interesting but I believe that we are one of the only independent agencies left standing who has never filed for bankruptcy, never held off payments to our contributors, have no debt to service and have made a nice profit for years with (well over) 5 million in sales!

    You're welcome to write us up anytime!
