NASA PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE 1960S & 70S
- The VAN HORN SOCIETY shows rare photographs from the NASA archives. Originally made by NASA for research purposes , these images are now symbols of a time in which the progress of mankind did not seem to stop , the sky was wide open and mankind's dream to travel to outer space was within reach.
We are also proud to be able to show for the first time the original test prints made by Frank Fried. This selection of photographic test-prints were all hand printed directly from original negatives shot on the moon within 3 days of each Apollo mission‘s return to Earth, from 1969 to 1972 at Authenticolor photo-lab in NYC.
They are the first-ever prints made from each original negative.
We see rocket launches , the blue earth from above, Astronauts on the moon - motifs we all are familiar with and which are icons of mankinds image history - Space: the final frontier....
The VAN HORN SOCIETY is dedicated to the specific, the other , the obscure or forgotten - the gems that can be found in the peripheral areas of art and photography.
Special thanks go to the collection of David Fried who shared his fathers great prints generously with us and to our partner LANGBRETT® under whose roof the VAN HORN SOCIETY obtains a temporary showroom .
