The current “Snowflakes Up Close” exhibit at the Rochester Museum and Science Center, 657 East Ave., features the photography of Rochester Institute of Technology professor Michael Peres and original photomicrographs made by pioneer snowflake photographer Wilson Bentley.
Visitors can explore the scientific art of snowflake photography with more than 30 images. The exhibit walks through Peres’ photographic process and examines each snowflake under a microscope.
Peres joined the RIT faculty in 1986 and currently serves as professor and administrative chairman of photographic arts and sciences. He will give a presentation as part of the RMSC Richard C. Shultz Science on the Edge lecture program at 7:30 p.m. April 27.
“Snowflakes Up Close” runs through April 30 on the third floor. The exhibit is free with museum admission — $14 for adults, $13 for seniors and college students, $12 for ages 3-18 and free for ages 2 and younger.
