Ah space, the infinite void surrounding our planet, incomprehensibly undulating and expanding with reckless abandon. Where does it start; where does it stop? Who can really say (scientists can say). For some reason that vacant area above our heads holds such a powerful appeal that we’ve been obsessing over it (and investing exorbitant cash sums into its exploration) for as long as we’ve been able to look at the sky.
But French photographer Vincent Fournier isn’t really all that interested in space in the traditional sense. You won’t catch him out late at night pointing his lens to the stars. What Vincent likes to document are the people with intergalactic obsessions; the physicists, astronauts and space enthusiasts bent on getting us the hell off of this godforsaken rock. Vincent’s been documenting these people for a number of years now and has collected his findings under the name Space Project, an epic body of photographs that explores, with incredible clarity, the folks committing their lives to the exploration and understanding of the universe at large.
