The Vintage Space Photos that Put Our World Into Perspective
American Photo posted a story on a space-themed photography exhibition currently on display at London gallery Daniel Blau. The show is made up of a collection of transfixing vintage photos from NASA.
Curiosity about the limits of our existence is programmed into our nature and humankind has spent centuries working to explore the outermost reaches of the unknown. Among life’s mysteries, the universe has proven to be the most seductive and open-ended of them all.
To feed this curiosity, Daniel Blau Gallery in London is hosting “Apollo 8 x 10,” an exhibition of vintage photographs taken beyond the limits of our atmosphere on NASA space explorations. The photographs, while incredibly useful to the growth of science and our understanding of the universe, are also extremely beautiful as works of art.
