What does a scientist look like?

The traditional media image of what ‘a scientist’ looks like is pretty stereotypical, especially in film.

The aim of the This Is What A Scientist Looks Like tumblr-site with the subtitle “Change the perception of who and what a scientist is or isn’t” is to overthrow “the overwhelming stereotype that science is conducted behind closed doors by unapproachable old, white men”, who look like Einstein or Dr No. Take a look in the archive!

For people who, like me, love to watch human physiognomies, this is a feast.
