Normally when we hear about photography on the space station, it’s photographs made there. It’s scenes looking back at earth through the windows of Cupola, the ISS observatory. Incredible views of the earth, stars, auroras, or crazy timelapse. This time, though, it’s not photos coming to the earth from the ISS. They’re going to the ISS from earth.
Playing host to its first photography exhibition, the ISS now houses five images from Indian photographer Dr. Hersh Chadha. Printed on vibrachrome by Duggal Visual Solutions, these five photographs are intended to reconnect the astronauts with the Earth.
