Artist's Inspiration

I took this photo in January 2016 at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, a place I frequently visit, being a space and astronomy enthusiast. At the time, my mother was visiting, and we took her to KSC for her first time. I was inspired by the beauty and complexity of our space program and wanted to capture some of the awe it creates in so many people. For this image, I used the water on top of a saucer-sized manhole cover as the canvas to capture the reflection of the space shuttle.

One of the coolest things has been having several people who used to work for the shuttle program purchase this image and share their personal stories of working for the program. One buyer’s brother even flew into space twice.
