Did you dream of flying to the moon when you were a kid? I know I did. It seemed impossible back then, but in a few years’ time, the first civilian will travel to the moon – and he has decided to bring a photographer along.

Japanese entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa will be SpaceX’s first space tourist who will fly to the moon in 2023, and he will soon announce the artistic crew who will follow him on this journey. Among other artists, he also plans to bring a photographer to capture this incredible journey.

Maezawa is a renowned art collector and will be the first passenger on SpaceX private lunar mission. Considering that he appreciates art, he wants to take several different types of artists along on the BFR spacecraft:

  • a film director
  • a painter
  • a dancer
  • a novelist
  • a musician
  • a fashion designer
  • a sculptor
  • an architect
  • a photographer

The crew will spend a week in space, 238,900 miles from home. The selected artists still haven’t been announced, but Maezawa hopes that the journey will inspire each of them to create something remarkable.

“Together with Earth’s top artists, I will be heading to the moon… just a little earlier than everyone else.” Maezawa writes. This is an amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity, and for me, it’s beyond comprehension to even think about it. But I believe it can be a huge pressure for the artists at the same time. Maezawa wonders what they will see, how they will feel, and what they will create. And I must admit I wonder, too.

    Do you really believe that is going to happen in 5 years from now? I highly doubt they will be able to do that.
