Frankel is a researcher at MIT and a senior research fellow at Harvard University’s Faculty of the Arts and Sciences, where she is head of the Envisioning Science Program, which emphasizes the use of images to communicate science.
Frankel has written several books on this subject (the latest one, called Envisioning Science, was published by MIT Press in 2002), and some of her writing on it can be found in her column for American Scientist magazine.
More of Frankel’s photographs can be seen on the Lennart Nilsson Award website, and in this recent article from the NY Times. And here are some photos by Satoshi Kuribayashi, the winner of last year’s award.
