While there's no question that photography is a way for us to see things through another person's eyes, acclaimed Chiacgo-based Reuben Wu never fails to take it up a notch. A fine example of the otherworldly landscape photography he has become known for is Lux Noctis, a series of photographs imagining the landscapes of North America as the setting of a surreal story inspired by exploring mysterious and undiscovered worlds.
With space exploration currently making bigger and bigger leaps in technology and scope, it's not surprising that more and more creative minds are filling the gaps with their imagination. It's interesting to see how conceptual photography has been picking up the pace, often borrowing themes, aesthetics, and story lines from some iconic space-themed science fiction flicks.
Space exploration has been one of mankind's biggest missions, and discovering Earth-like worlds has captured the imagination of many in the last two decades. If scientists and engineers have been responding to this with provisions for space travel, artists like Copenhagen-based photographer Ken Hermann have been turning to their creativity to imagine what it would be like if cosmic travelers do find one in the not-so-distant future.
