Michael Light, Stratocumulus Clouds 4,000 feet Above the Pacific Ocean, Direct Digital Chromogenic Development Print
From the project Full Moon by Michael Light. 4/50. Stratocuulus Clouds 4,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. Attributed to Ronald Evans, Apollo 17. December 7-19, 1972. Light was hired by NASA in the late 1960s to develop photography techniques for the Apollo missions, yielding images of both great scientific value and reverential allusion to the history of landscape imagery. His works marvel at the technological accomplishments of the 20th century, while illustrating the smallness of mankind in the context of outer space. As Light explains, “Photographs give me an analog to my physical movement through space, sometimes more interesting than the actual experience.” He raises these images beyond simple analytic study to sophisticated aesthetic objects. Scuff mark on frame.
