Researchers from across the disciplines at LJMU were asked to take their best shot at encapsulating their research into a single image. The Images of Research Photography Competition, a part of LJMU’s Research and Innovation Day, aims to share the wonder and diversity of our research activity and show how research makes a real difference.
Researchers had to pull back from the intricate details of their work in order to share the beauty and curiosity of what they do, why they do it, and how it matters to others.
The photographers have provided brief summaries to explain their images and research – read the summaries and see all of the shortlisted images.
Here are the winning images...
