On 1 June 2018, 20 photographers visited CERN for an exclusive opportunity to explore the world’s largest particle physics laboratory and record behind-the-scenes views with their lenses as part of a Physics Photowalk. This year, for the fourth time, CERN has teamed up with major science laboratories around the world for an international photography competition: the 2018 Global Physics Photowalk.
For the competition at CERN, we opened the doors of four unique spaces in the laboratory: the photographers discovered the SMI2 hall where magnets for the Large Hadron Collider’s High-Luminosity upgrade are being built; one of the workshops for manufacture and testing magnets; the CERN Control Centre, from where the laboratory’s entire accelerator complex is controlled; and the Antiproton Decelerator, also known as the “Antimatter Factory”.
A jury from CERN has chosen the 20 best photos from the event. The jury was composed of Cassandre Simon-Poirier, an artist who spent a few months at CERN as part of the Arts at CERN programme; Julien Ordan, a photographer from CERN’s Audiovisual Production Team; and Nicolas Peray, representative of the CERN Photo Club.
In addition to picking these best photos, they also chose two of the three winners of the CERN competition, which will be sent to the Global Physics Photowalk contest. We need your help to choose the third photo from CERN.
