Daily Overview

I’m enjoying looking through Daily Overview – a fantastic blog of stunning satellite imagery of Earth. Also available to follow on Instagram.

As featured in the latest issue of Wired.

The Rehearsal of Space and the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite

The Rehearsal of Space and the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite / Edgar Martins, 2014

One of my favourite photographers, Edgar Martins, has just released his latest body of work. He spent the last few years documenting the European Space Agency, and the result is a breathtaking visual survey of this scientific world.

The project is currently on show at the Wapping Project Bankside – I urge you to go and see these prints, some of which are up to 2m in size. Also, the book is available now via The Moth House.

A really nicely done, pixel-perfect representation of our Solar System by Josh Worth. Amazing stuff.

“The Welsh Space Campaign launches ordinary Welsh people into outer space, by finding a cosmic context for Welsh culture, skills and traditions.”

Love the logo for this new project by Hefin Jones. The red arrow is representative of the tail of the Welsh dragon. Logo design by Aron Jones.

30 years of the Space Shuttle – available now

30 years of the Space Shuttle / Tim George, 2013

To coincide with the launch of my new site, I have a new print for sale! Again, I’ve been working on this one for a long time… ever since the Shuttle was retired in July 2011, in fact.

Anyway, better late than never. I’m really pleased with the print – it’s been exquisitely screenprinted by K2 screen, in 3 colours (white, grey, orange) on dark grey stock from GF Smith.

It’s a limited edition of 30, available to buy now for £30 each. Go get one!

Shuttle

Shuttle teaser

Celebrating the Shuttle — coming soon

It’s been a looong time since I originally posted about a self-initiated  project to celebrate the conclusion of NASA’s space shuttle program.

Originally I hoped to release a print to coincide with the final mission, but that came and went in July 2011 and I never got the piece to a stage I was happy with.

Anyway, watch this space, because I am pleased to announce that in early 2013 the project will be unveiled. Better late than never! ;)

Beautiful long-exposure shots taken from the ISS by Don Pettit.

Also make sure you check out the rest of the stuff uploaded to Flickr by NASA_JSC_Photo, there are some amazing shots of all things space-related on there, and most are free to download at massive resolution.
