Moon: Photographing the Moon 1840-Now by Maarten Dings & Joachim Naudts


On July 21, 1969, the first human set foot on The Moon. When Neil Armstrong was asked if this made him feel big, he answered: “No, it made me feel really, really small.”

50 years later, MOON takes you on a photographic journey to our nearest celestial body, and back again. The subject of dreams and the imagination, but also the catalyst for a global Space Race: the moon leaves no one untouched. In this beautiful volume, editors Maarten Dings and Joachim Naudts go in search of the story behind this elusiive disc in our firmament, and work to reconcile its scientific, political poetic aspects.

In this richly illustrated publication you will find 19th-century historical photography, archival images from NASA and Life magazine and a wide range of work by artists such as Annemie Augustijns, Fabrizio Boni & Giorgio De Finis, Tom Callemin, Cortis & Sonderegger, Cristina de Middel, Joan Fontcuberta, Vincent Fournier, Leon Gimpel, Harry Gruyaert, Kikuji Kawada, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Michael Light, Agnes Meyer-Brandis, Joel Meyerowitz, Aleksandra Mir, Lisa Oppenheim, Johan Osterholm, Katie Paterson, Robert Pufleb & Nadine Schlieper, Penelope Umbrico and Garry Winogrand.
