Artist Statement

 

This photo made its first appearance online at 4:18 pm on October 18th, 2015 when American astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted it, along with the following: “My cosmonaut colleague Oleg Kononenko took this incredible picture of #NYC last night. Enjoy. #YearInSpace”. What a sign of the times, that an image can be made in space, sent out to the world on Twitter, *and* appropriately hashtagged. Unsurprisingly, the photograph was quite popular online and was often included in round-ups of best imagery from the International Space Station.

This image was produced using the barn-door method, which was designed by NASA astronaut and 20x200 artist Donald Pettit. It provides a stunning view of the city that never sleeps. Within the strikingly gridded neighborhoods, one can even distinguish the white hot lights of Times Square and the swaths of darkness that indicate the city’s parks.
