Benedict Redgrove is a talented 47-year-old self-taught photographer and graphic designer currently based in London, UK. Redgrove has produced a new ongoing photography project titled “ NASA – Past and Present Dreams of the Future” documenting survey of Nasa Technology. For Benedict, the project started seven years ago and will continue until the launch of SLS and Orion in 2018. Past and Present Dreams of the Future is an extraordinary series of images of NASA’s iconic crafts, suits, facilities and objects.
“To me, there is no other organisation in the world that is more progressive, more exciting or stands more for the betterment of mankind and peace than NASA. In my opinion its the greatest organisation in the world, it involves, science, arts, design, engineering, manufacturing, passion, belief, education, information, creation, technology, always moving forward, always seeking answers and finding them then asking more questions. They educate us, inform us not only about the universe but about our planet too, and pass down technologies into our everyday lives.
I have spent the past seven years on this project with two more before it finishes in the a timely way with the launch of SLS and Orion in 2018. As that launches into a new era, so the full collection will launch as an exhibition and book.”
