APOLLO'S MUSE: THE MOON IN THE AGE OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, Apollo’s Muse honors the rich history of photographic representations of the moon, from rarely seen early daguerreotypes to contemporary video art. Engaging and accessible, the book explores how photographers captured this celestial body—and how the images have in turn inspired artists, writers, and scientists.    The book’s wide-ranging focus includes extraordinary reproductions of the first successful series of lunar daguerreotypes by the American photographer John Adams Whipple, along with film stills from Voyage dans la Lune (1902) by Georges Méliès; American “paper moon” studio portraits; images from the Apollo mission; and works by contemporary artists, including Vija Celmins, Roy Lichtenstein, Aleksandra Mir, Vik Muniz, Nam June Paik, and Robert Rauschenberg. Related prints, drawings, paintings, and astronomical instruments explore artists’ fascination with the moon, as an object of both art and science. A foreword by actor Tom Hanks, star of the award-winning 1995 film Apollo 13, outlines the importance of lunar images to art and cinema, reinforcing the universal fascination with representations of the cosmos.This fascinating view of lunar imagery explores visual representations of the moon from the dawn of photography to the present

NUDE

 Stefan Rappo's nude photography strikes an intriguing note between intimacy and distance. At first, the viewer feels a certain distance, and in the next moment they are entangled in the picture's tangible tensions and emotions. A longtime assistant to Peter Lindbergh and a renowned portrait photographer, Rappo has found his own nude pictorial language that focuses on the female form--at times drawing on the studio tradition and at others reveling in the body in motion. Nude, Rappo's first publication, brings together some of his favorite nude photographs, indispensable for those who love nude photography.
