A exhibition of new prints from over 50 years of Space Photography is joining the current Life Form Exhibition for a mind-blowing journey from the living world close-up to the depths of space. The Space Photography Exhibit evolved out of Steve’s longterm interest in the space program and views offered of the heavens and by spacecraft far away. The concentration on the exotic form of the living world of the Life Form work inspired this expressive look at the wonders of the very large and distant in this print exploration of photographs Steve had been gathering for years.

50 Years of Space Photography

Our Moon, Solar System, Galaxy and the Universe Beyond

Other Worldly features 50 Years of Space Photography with more than 36 photographs from planetary probes, the Hubble Space Telescope, and NASA’s manned space program. A tribute to Apollo 11 on this 50th. Anniversary of the Moon landing is featured. Stunning photographs recovered over the last decade from the 1966 Lunar Orbiter are paired with remarkable new lunar landscapes from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. These 40 inch prints allow a drama and intimacy rarely seem in these wonderful photographs.

This exhibit also features some of Steve’s photographs of the space program. Steve’s original prints and Public Domain images he has printed from the Space Photography exhibit will be for sale.
