Event details

Astronomy and in general experiencing the sky above can be an immense inspiration for everyone. This has lead to many competitions trying to capture the amazing visualisations astronomers, amateur-astronomers, astro-photographers and artists have created, as well as stunning exhibitions of their works. One of these is the Astronomy Photographer of the Year ran by the Royal Greenwich Observatory and its 2022 exhibition.

This is an annual competition featuring the world’s greatest space photography. Photographers from across the globe compete to take home the prestigious title. And the winners of the 2022 category for image innovation, Pauline Woolley, will be giving us some insight into her creative process and science leading to her stunning image. In her talk How the Sun made Art P Woolley will outline how over the past decade light from the Sun has been a predominant part of her practice. Here she will discuss how open access data led to the creation of 'Solar Tree' the Annie Maunder Image Innovation category winner of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2022.
