On October 12, 2002, the first Images from Science (IFS) exhibition opened in the William Harris Gallery at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). Professor Michael Peres and Professor Emeritus Andrew Davidhazy created the project with the intent of promoting a wider appreciation of scientific photography by showcasing beautiful, data-rich - but rarely seen - images drawn from oceanography, geology, biology, engineering, medicine, and physics in the traveling exhibition.

The organizers of IFS 3 hoped to identify 75 examples of images that revealed science in new and unique ways. Similar to past IFS projects, they used the internet as the primary voice for promotion. Different than IFS 1 and 2, this exhibition features moving images, animations, and medical illustrations, as well as photographs. An international panel of seven experts from around the world selected 81 images. Creating an international exhibition on a tight budget created some unique challenges. The success of the exhibition required constant innovation and problem solving.

Organizers: Michael Peres, Norm Barker, Ted Kinsman, Bob Rose, and Chris Jackson
