Portrait of Adam Sedgwick 1867. Sedgwick wrote a harsh review of a presentation of Darwin's Origin of Species ideas in the Edinburgh review of 1860. He had written an even more scathing review of Chamber's evolutionary Vestiges of Creation" some ten years earlier. Darwin considered that few of the older generation of natural scientists, even those he had known like Sedgewick, would come around to his point of view on natural selection. Some believe it was this that caused him to delay publication for so long after he had the idea."
Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library.
Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
