Vincent Fournier

Vincent Fournier

Work from Space Project.

"SPACE PROJECT is a photography series based on Fournier’s fascination with the Jules Verne novel “From the Earth to the Moon.” Fournier photographed observatories and astronaut training stations in some of the most desolate places in the world, including the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center of the Russian Federation, the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, and the Atacama Desert Observatories in Chile. His ghostly, composed photographs--mysterious, space suited men walking on a vast desert plain, a researcher quietly sitting in a blindingly white sterile environment, abandoned monitors blinking codes in a simulation room—have an otherworldly, unreal aesthetic. In these fascinating images, Fournier explores the paranoia and darkness of man’s attraction to the disconnect of space." - text via Clic Gallery
