Sketches of Science

Photo sessions with Nobel Laureates

The exhibition Sketches of Science: Photo sessions with Nobel Laureates is a display of 50 portraits of Nobel Laureates shot by German photographer Volker Steger.

Barré-Sinoussi, Laughlin

Each of his meetings with the Laureates began with Steger laying a blank sheet of paper and a box of crayons in front of them, after which he challenged them to: "Draw your discovery!" Once completed, a portrait was taken of the Laureate holding the drawing.

The portraits and a selection of original drawings included in the exhibition are complemented by interviews and presentations of the Nobel Laureates and their discoveries.

Many of the photographs were taken in connection with the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. The exhibition has been produced by the Nobel Museum in collaboration with the Foundation Lindau Nobelprizewinners Meetings at Lake Constance. Interviews has been made in collaboration with Nobel Media.
