NASA Apollo 11 – Man on the MoonA Visual Archive

Fifty years after Neil Armstrong, crew member of Apollo 11, set his left foot on the surface of the moon for the first time in human history, the fascination with the Earth’s satellite continues unabated. NASA Apollo 11 – Man on the Moon is about the astronauts’ journey to the moon and documents the visual results that the three crew members brought back.

They were equipped with a Hasselblad 500EL DATA Camera, with reseauplates and a Zeiss Biogon 60mm ƒ/5.6 lens to take pictures before and during the mission. The resulting footage can be viewed in NASA’s web archive. NASA Apollo 11 – Man on the Moon shows it in its completeness for the first time.

“NASA APOLLO 11 Man on the Moon: The Visual Archive” appears in the second year of the Discovered series, a collaboration between the Hamburg University of Fine Arts, the Leipzig Academy of Visual Arts, and the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts that awards selected student projects with publication by Spector Books. The winning books will subsequently be mentored, produced and published under the supervision of professors Markus Dressen, Uli Cluss, Ingo Offermanns and the publishers of Spector Books.
