The thought of traveling to space has always enticed the minds of mankind to awaken to a higher state, and we have been graced by more than enough Space Art lately to see this fantastical pursuit unfold in real time. French photographer Vincent Fornier’s body of work is no exception. Pulling from a collective memory both imagined and real, his new book Past Forward forms a roadmap for forthcoming visual benchmarks in the 21st century space race.
Drawing upon the work of Tin Tin, Stanley Kubrick, Jeff Wall, and other contemporaries, Fornier’s work sheds light on a sterilized universe: designed, pictorial, absurd, accidental and beautiful. The photographer talks his fascinations in a VICE documentary as well, definitely worth the watch is you are into space aesthetics!
