Portraits Project: Scientists - Pia Parolin


Every scientist has something interesting to say. But do we get our messages out there, into the “real world”? Do people who are not directly connected to our field of work understand what we are doing at all?

Over the years, we have gained a good overview of many things in our research and working area, and deep insights into a specialized section due to our experience, passion, reflection, perseverance. With this portrait series, I want to introduce scientists with their key insights which perhaps make the people think, learn something interesting and new, or find a guiding line.

I have been at the interface of Science and Art (photography) for a few years now and use my network and personal contacts to introduce my scientist colleagues and friends from different disciplines, countries, backgrounds to the world.

The project consists of portraits each with a short text in the mother language of the scientist and its English translation. I take the portrait photo of my colleagues, with their consent and natural in the normal day of the scientist’s life.
