Signs of Life

These photos depict astronauts encountering a foreign place far from home, full of life and experiences that, although perfectly ordinary to the viewer, are alien to the subjects. They are uncertain at first, but become more accepting of their surroundings as the photos progress. The beginning works exhibit a cold harshness devoid of life and full of darkness, exploring the initial suspicion of encountering new ideas or endeavors. Eventually, the astronauts open their helmets and are amazed by what they’ve discovered. Although this new fascination is present, it is still intertwined with feelings of longing, doubt, and fear. By exploring the concept of new experiences in a narrative way, I focus on the mixed emotions of leaving the comfort zone and feeling like you don’t belong.
