Film director to discuss technical photography

Peter Kuran will discuss the history and basics of photography, and Edgerton, Germeshausen, and Grier, Inc.’s role in filming the technical photography during the atmospheric testing years, during a talk at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Bradbury Science Museum. The talk is free and the public is welcome.
Kuran is the award-winning producer and director of “Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb Movie,” a documentary presenting the history of nuclear weapons development and testing.
In 2002, Kuran won an Academy Award in the Scientific and Technical Achievement category for Restored Color Imaging, a photochemical process he developed to restore original color negatives of government footage, including previously classified footage, of which portions were badly faded.
The talk, “Atomic Bomb Photography and the EG&G Film Project,” also will explore current projects involving researching, cataloging and scanning the EG&G Technical Film Collections.
