Personal and public photographic archives are used as a device to draw connections between seemingly disparate storylines – an American road trip, the return of Halley’s Comet, and NASA’s Teacher in Space program, which invited the first civilian to leave the Earth aboard the Challenger Space Shuttle in 1986. Shortlisted for the Paris Photo/Aperture Foundation First Photobook Award, 2016.
Aspen Mays’ work positions Science – particularly astronomical and meteorological observation – as containing deeply human, aesthetic and subjective experiences that are often mediated by cameras and photographic images.
Daniel Boardman’s work combines photography, drawing, and modifying special effects techniques pioneered in early cinema in order to create layered images that are unbound from time or place.
