Description

Mockup of Node 2 or Harmony (the ‘utility module’ of the International Space Station) in the Erasmus high bay (ESA-ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands)

Edgar Martins has collaborated closely with ESA to produce a comprehensive photographic survey of the Agency’s various facilities around the globe, together with those of its international partners.

Characteristically empty of people, Martins’ long-exposure photos – taken with analogue wide film cameras – possess a stark, reverent style. They document the variety of specialised installations and equipment needed to prepare missions for space, or to recreate orbital conditions for testing down on Earth.
