31 (More) Days of #BIF7 - Day 5 - Eva Timothy

Nowadays when people talk of innovation, we probably think of new cutting-edge technology, renewables and green energy, business improvements, and entrepreneurship. But as celebrated photographer Eva Timothy related during her BIF-7 story, there is an amazing history of innovation worth studying as well.

Eva's efforts to capture moments of innovation from the Renaissance led her to employ photographic juxtaposition, or techniques to combine visualization devices like magnifying glasses with portraits or historical documents. The resulting pairings are original and effective, even when illuminating well-known figures like Columbus, Da Vinci, and Galileo.

The project and visuals Eva ultimately produced are compiled in the text Lost in Learning: The Art of Discovery
