The Earth gazers : on seeing ourselves
The Earth gazers : on seeing ourselves
Potter, Christopher, 1959-2018
Books, Manuscripts
The most beautiful and influential photographs ever made were of the whole Earth seen from space. They were taken, almost as an afterthought, by the astronauts of the Apollo space programme from the moon. They inspired a generation of scientists and environmentalists to think more seriously about our responsibility for this tiny oasis in space, the 'blue marble' falling through empty darkness. This is a book about the long road to the capture of those unforgettable images.
