Astro-Visions

Saturday, October 26, 2013, 12 a.m., Main Galleries

To complement The History of Space Photography, Eastman House has organized Astro-Visions, which draws from our rich collections to explore how scientists, photographers, and filmmakers have incorporated images of outer space into their work. Among the items on display are examples of how scientists illustrated astral bodies before photography, film stills from Georges Méliès’s A Trip to the Moon and Roger Vadim’s Barbarella, and photographs by Bill Finger depicting an imaginary world in which an astronaut gives up everything to live on Mars. The exhibition is science–meets–science fiction, presenting the ways humans have illustrated their ideas of the cosmos from the mid-nineteenth century to the present.
