The Far Side

The Far Side

2016

The Far Side by Alain Richard expresses the artist’s desire to capture the “other side of the moon” usually invisible from earth. Above all, the goal is to expose and bring to light the hidden and shaded side of the mystical orb normally not appreciated or exposed to public view.

He sets out, using images captured by NASA in 1972 * during the Apollo 16’s mission, on which he has worked, choosing to offer a different perspective, casting a luminous new light, on a previously hidden topic. He works the images using various assembling and detailing technics. The work is presented in Lightbox (Duratrans printing and Diasec® collage).
