Life inside CERN

Andri Pol and Lars Muller inside CERN
It’s always (to me anyway) interesting to see artists’ studios, artisan workshops and the like. I’m pretty sure if I’ve ever wondered what the labs of particle physicists look like but, thankfully, Andri Pol and author Peter Stamm did, and there’s now a book of their observations.

Throughout the publication, a fascinating juxtaposition is established, contrasting reassuringly familiar scenes with some of the most complex pieces of scientific equipment anywhere in the world - a worker is shown seemingly exasperated by a coffee machine, while another employee is visible taking a sip of water meters from the hadron collider itself. The photographer presents his subjects amongst mountains of stacked books, tangled in webs of cables and immersed in endless scrawls of equations and formulae.
