On 21 July 1969, at 2.56am UTC, Neil Alden
Armstrong became the first man to set
foot on the moon. Fifty 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.
Editors Maarten Dings and Joachim
Naudts (FOMU Antwerp) go in search of
the story behind this elusive disc in our
firmament and reconcile its scientific,
political and poetic aspects. MOON
reveals the early days of photography and
includes images by Draper (1840) and
Whipple (1852), together with plates from
the unsurpassed lunar atlas by Loewy &
Puiseux (1896–1910). This book explores
the pivotal year of the Apollo mission in
1969 and the Cold War era, yet also allows
contemporary artists to shine their light on
the moon. The result is a stimulating flow
of images that balances on the fine line
between fact and fiction, and between
bitter seriousness and sweet dreams.
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,
among others, Annemie Augustijns, Fabrizio
Boni & Giorgio De Finis, Tom Callemin, Cortis
& Sonderegger, Cristina de Middel, Joan
Fontcuberta, Vincent Fournier, Léon Gimpel,
Harry Gruyaert, Kikuji Kawada, Sjoerd
Knibbeler, Michael Light, Agnes Meyer-
Brandis, Joel Meyerowitz, Aleksandra Mir,
Lisa Oppenheim, Johan Österholm, Katie
Paterson, Robert Pufleb & Nadine Schlieper,
Penelope Umbrico and Garry Winogrand.
With essays by Wilco Versteeg and James
