From scanning electron micrographs of a kidney stone to an X-ray of a bat, a three dimensional computed tomography image of a seal skull and a cross section of a flower bud, the pictures from this year's Wellcome Image Awards are beautiful, strange and occasionally alarming and can be seen in an exclusive exhibition at W5.
The Wellcome Image Awards is an annual competition celebrating creative and captivating images, bringing to life a wealth of scientific and medical discovery. The ability of an image to tell a story is a powerful one and can communicate strongly some of the health challenges we are facing. From detailed microscopy and clinical photography to illustration, the Wellcome Image Awards provide an opportunity to show in minute detail the wonder that can be found in the world around and within us. This is a fascinating opportunity to see these images and your only opportunity to see this exhibition in Ireland.
