When Apollo 11 astronauts first set foot on the Moon, it marked one of humanity’s crowning achievements. But they didn’t go there alone. Kodak’s engineers designed cameras and film that proved critical for every stage of the mission. And thanks to their
ingenuity, one small step for man became a giant leap for how we see the world.
This unique exhibit celebrates Kodak employees' achievements and showcases the various roles images played in putting a man on the moon.
NASA's Next Frontier
Experience a unique look forward with images from photographer Alex Baker, who’s been given exclusive access to NASA facilities to document the next phase of space exploration.
“When buying my first 35mm film camera over 20 years ago, I never would have imagined I would have a chance to put my own artistic eye on these things that filled me with such wonder as a child. I knew I wanted to bring a nostalgic feel and sentiment
to the pictures I took when I received the privilege of stepping through the doors at NASA. This meant Kodak film was going to be in my bag. Fortunately, they make such a wide variety of high quality and unique film stocks that it helped satisfy
my often-frantic unpredictable style of shooting and capture a variety of moods and feels.” Alex Baker, Photographer, Ratio Image, LLC
