Bob Miller’s Light Walk, 1980’s, photo by Nancy Rodger
A note: Nancy Rodger, one of the Exploratorium’s earliest photographers, passed away just last week. Her ability to translate the wonder and magic of the museum was exceptional, as evidenced through countless images posted on this Tumblr. Nancy worked closely with graphic designers, scientists, artists, and writers to produce photographs for Exploratorium books, magazines, exhibits, and advertising. At the time, Nancy was the sole employee in charge of shooting, developing, and printing for the entire museum. She also developed storage and filing systems for photos, negatives, and related information; the seeds of an archive that we celebrate on this very website. She will be greatly missed by many.
