Within the frame of the Photographic Spring 2002, the Map Library organized an exhibition of aerial photographies at the ICC's exhibitions hall on May 9-29. This exhibition displayed some pieces stored at the photographic library, and it was structured in 3 ambits:

  • Transformed spaces: with some examples of two photographs of the same place, taken with a difference of fifty years, in order to notice the changes in the landscape.
  • The colour as a detector: photographies with both colour and infrared colour emulsions were displayed, which permit, at a glance, to observe the different land coverings and uses.
  • Places from the vertical: photographies of well-known or easily identifiable places displayed form the vertical perspective, which provide them with a different image.
