“Apollo 17 was the last mission in NASA's Apollo program and the last mission in which humans traveled and walked on the Moon.
However, in 1976 the secret Apollo 18 mission began in which a single astronaut traveled to the moon to investigate a strange structure. Unfortunately, contact was lost after landing and nothing was heard from the Apollo 18 mission until now, when some original negatives were recovered ”.
This series of portraits of an astronaut abandoned on the moon and was on my mind for a long time. I photographed the astronaut on set, with the images I wanted to create in mind and the idea of building a 3D moon stage, but I found the Apollo Project Archive on flickr, with thousands of original high-resolution images from the Apollo missions and finally I made all the final key images with the original scanned files.
A dream come true!
