Space Steps: The Moon and Beyond at Royal Photographic Society


Space Steps: The Moon and Beyond an exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing - one of humankinds most extraordinary adventures.

On 20 July 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin ('Buzz') Aldrin became the first men to set foot on the surface of the Moon.
Space Steps: The Moon and Beyond explores the journey of Apollo 11, illustrated by some of the most remarkable and iconic images ever captured on film. The exhibition traces the story of the earlier Mercury and Gemini space missions and the Apollo programme up to 1969, also paying tribute to the crucial role that women played in the space programme.

Recognising the importance of space exploration today and providing a contemporary focus, the exhibition will present Ascension, an interactive installation by Mexican-British photographer Monica Alcazar-Duarte, exploring how space scientists working in facilities across Europe, are engaging in a new space race.

Also on display are two very rare cameras associated with the historic moon landings. From 5 - 7 July the RPS will display the Hasselblad HDC space camera lent by Hasselblad AB, Sweden on its only UK showing. Visitors will be able to see up close one of the original cameras used by the Apollo astronauts during their training programme.
