One great reason to visit LA this summer! We love working with Dan, and this project was no exception. These framed prints were made in two sizes, 44″ x 57.5″ and 30″ x 40″ and will be showing at Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles starting tonight, Thursday, July 11. Thanks again, Dan, for including us in this amazing project.
From Dan’s book Last Launch
Last Launch is a stunning photographic tribute to America’s space shuttle program. Dan Winters was one of only a handful of photographers to whom NASA gave close-range access to photograph the last launches of Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour. Positioning automatically controlled cameras at strategic points around the launch pad—some as close as seven hundred feet—he recorded images of take-offs that capture the incredible power and transcendent beauty of the blast that sends the shuttle hurtling into space. Winters also takes us on a visual tour of the shuttle as a marvel of technology—from the crew spaces with their complex instrumentation, to the massive engines that propelled the shuttle, to the enormous vehicle assembly building where the shuttles were prepared for flight.
