New York-based photographer Stanley Greenberg has entranced viewers with his stunning black and white photographs for many years and now you can see his work at the MIT Museum, which hosts many wonderful Events in Boston throughout the year.

Greenberg’s photos provide unparalleled access to objects and places that ordinary people might not see otherwise. He has photographed New York’s century-old water system and the hidden infrastructure of some of the world’s most impressive architectural works.

What to do in Boston? Choose The Boston Park Plaza Hotel - A Luxury Boston Hotel located close to Boston Common Park, Boston's Freedom Trail, Boston Shopping, and Events in Boston. In the MIT Museum exhibition, Greenberg’s lens is focused on the strange, mysterious world of nuclear and particle physics.

One of the works on display is a photograph tilted “Calorimeters and toroid magnet, ATLAS, Large Hadron Collider,” which was taken in 2006 in Switzerland. Ongoing attempts to re-create the conditions of the Big Bang, using the world’s largest atom smasher, proved to be useful and beautiful material for Greenberg, who traveled over the course of 5 years in search of the most important experiments in modern physics.

His quest was to photograph some of the most sophisticated equipment that science has to offer, and his journey led him inside of mountains, down mine shafts, and into laboratories miles above sea level. What results from Greenberg’s efforts are beautiful photographs in which accelerators and hulking detectors are shown as works of art.

Greenberg’s work was the subject of an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010, and they have also been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of Art. Now you can see his stunning photographs at the MIT Museum in Boston.
