DR. JOSÉ FRANCISCO SALGADO, presenter
ABOUT THE EVENT
In this multimedia presentation, Dr Salgado talks about the science behind his Science & Symphony films and the creative process involved in making them. This includes photographing natural phenomena around the world such as the lunar tides and the aurora borealis. Through excerpts from these films, we embark on an awe-inspiring virtual tour, travelling from the subarctic North to the South Pole and from Earth’s orbit to galaxies far away, while learning about these fantastic places. Dr Salgado further encourages audiences to think in multidisciplinary ways and to explore fields such as science, music, education, filmmaking and photography.
