One’s perspective shifts when one lives for an entire year — as Commander Scott Kelly, and no other American astronaut in history has, –in the isolating, grueling, and utterly unforgiving vacuum of space. Kelly’s photos prove that this perspective from 250 miles above earth, while hard-won, is also almost unspeakably beautiful.
In this stunning exhibition, Kelly captures sunsets, moonrises, the aurora borealis, and the luminous, hazy tapestry of the Milky Way. He presents snapshots of life and work on the International Space Station, from spacewalks to selfies.
Astronaut Scott Kelly mastered the rare art of microgravity photography. Kelly’s artist’s eye helped make him a social media sensation, and here his photos are collected alongside his own commentary, which sets the images in their proper contexts, human and cosmic.
The public is invited to a free opening reception for the exhibition on Thursday, June 19, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; closed Sunday. For more information, please call (561) 253-2600 or visit workshop.org or fotofusion.org.
