HAROLD EDGERTON "BULLET THROUGH JACK" 1964
Science, art and technology converged in the works of American inventor/photographer Harold Edgerton.
While Edgerton started his career as an electrical engineer - his inventions led to some of the most iconic and innovative images of the 20th century.
In the 1930's Edgerton invented a device called the "Stroboscope" that produced intense flashes of light. The invention allowed photographic images to be instantly recorded that until then had been impossible to capture.
Over the succeeding decades Edgerton created arresting images of milk drops, water coming out of a faucet and of course bullets in mid-flight.
Curiously during most of his career Edgerton was more active in the science and technology realms - working with the US' Atomic Energy Commission, Jacque Cousteau and teaching at MIT.
To this day Edgerton is still described as "Papa Flash"
