One of Gathany's most famous photographs: the female Aedes aegypti mosquito

For the past 30 years, Jim Gathany has been documenting CDC's scientific achievements, its significant events, its facilities, and its history.  A Lens on CDC will celebrate Gathany's long career, the artistry of both his scientific and documentary work, and his incredible contributions to CDC. 

Front and center will be Gathany's photographs documenting insects, parasites and other vectors--his work that best epitomizes the integration of art and science.  Using powerful close-up lenses, Gathany has produced exquisite compositions of mosquitos, lice, ticks, and other vectors that are both scientific documents and works of art.  Equally artful are his photographs of scientists working in CDC's famed labs.  He has also served as CDC's lead photographer, documenting the many world leaders, including President Barack Obama, who have visited CDC.   Collectively, the more than 50 images included in A Lens on CDC will celebrate Gathany's individual achievements, as well as the work of the world's leading public health agency.
