Harold Edgerton - In a Flash presented some 80 works by photographer Harold Edgerton (1903-1990). Edgerton was able to capture images that are too fast for the eye to catch. His images - a bullet piercing an apple, a hummingbird in flight, water splashing into a glass - are among the landmarks of 20th century photography.
