About Imaging Science
The origins of the Imaging Science Group can be traced back to 1919 when the concept of a Scientific and Technical Group was developed to provide a forum for those members interested in the science behind photography. In 1986 the group was renamed the Imaging Science and Technology Group and in 1998 it became the Imaging Science Group, reflecting the changing scientific, technological and imaging landscape. Now over a century later the Group has a wider purpose than just the underlying science behind photography. While maintaining our interest in the core technologies, we share knowledge of issues such as colour space, resolution and hardware as well as experience with scientific imaging techniques. Knowing what can and cannot be done allows us all to push the boundaries of our photography, no matter in what part of the medium we practice. In 2020 we celebrated our centenary as the Scientific and Technical Group’s inaugural meeting was held on the 1st January 1920.
