"Beautiful land" – Maret Einasto's exhibition at the observatory
Tartu Observatory is exhibiting a collection of Maret Einasto's nature photos, which help to see that in spite of worrying topics in our daily lives, there is also much to appreciate around us. Maret Einasto is a photographer on the side of her job as an associate professor at the department of physics of galaxies and cosmology.
The photos displayed have been taken during Einasto's bike rides or walks around Tõravere.
Einasto said that one of the reasons behind the exhibition was the feeling of concern that set in in people's lives during the pandemic. "That's when I decided to use my photos to show that all the beauty around us is still there – in spite of biodiversity loss. Therefore the photos have been taken starting from last spring."
The exhibition can be seen in the main building of Tartu Observatory.
