Robert Ludlow an alumnus of the BA Honours Photography has won the coveted Wellcome Image Award 2012

Robert's stunning image “Intracranial recording for epilepsy” shows the surface of a patient’s brain during surgery at the UCLH National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square.

Professor Alice Roberts, who was a member of the judging panel, said: “This is a remarkable image of a human brain. What makes it so different from most images of the surface of the brain is that this organ is living- this is a brain as it is encountered during neurosurgery... it is quite extraordinary".

Upon receiving news the award, Robert Ludlow commented: "I feel very privileged and very proud at winning this award".

The Wellcome Image Awards celebrate the way photography and micrography can show unexpected biomedical structures and patterns. The winning images are displayed at the Wellcome Collection in London from 21 June.
