Debbie Ireland – Hasselblad and the Moon Landing 

3rd February 2019 at 7:30 pm

£3 – £5
Buzz Aldrin on the moon

Even in today’s image saturated world, the photography from the Apollo 11 Mission still has huge impact as a record of man’s ultimate adventure. Over fifty years have passed since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon and those square format pictures taken with the Hasselblad cameras are a beautiful and powerful reminder of their achievement.

This talk tells the story of the Moon landing through the lens of the camera that recorded it, and considers the significance of its photographs in our understanding of the most iconic of space journeys. It narrates the story of the giant technological leap required not only to transport and deliver the first two humans to stand on the Moon, but also to successfully capture the images that bear testament to their having done so.
