Ed Bateman Reverses Photosynthesis

Fascinating read on how Ed was able to capture light being released from decaying leaves.

Thanks to @Bruce_Hucko for bringing this to my attention, just had to share it here!


Thanks, David, that sounds good. I tried twice though, and the link didn’t work.

@David_Kingham. Like Shirley, I can’t make the link work. A very interesting looking image.

Hmm, their website seems to be down. Here’s a link to the archived page:


This is so interesting. Thanks for the link. From a chemistry standpoint (and I never took chemistry!), I’m curious about the idea of the stored light leaking out and exposing the paper. I wonder if it is really just the stored sugar that leaks out? Anyway, this is really fascinating, and the images are beautiful.
