Artist Statement

The conversation around space travel in the 1960s tends to center around the first moon landing in 1969. But another incredible event took place four years earlier: the first spacewalk (which celebrates its 50th anniversary in March 2015). The first American to complete a spacewalk was Ed White, pictured here in Gemini IV: Spacewalk I (S65-34635). He described the moment of returning to the spacecraft as the "saddest moment of my life." Of the many images taken of White on this mission, we loved this one best: the Gemini IV spacecraft and the curvature of the earth reflected in his golden helmet, his right hand flung out as if to say, "Welcome to the universe."
