Auckland Festival of Photography 2012: Talking Culture Sunday Series
Bitten by the 'Moonbug', photographer Steve Pyke set out on a journey across America in his search to meet and photograph the Apollo space pioneers, a journey in which he was to meet the adventurers, risk takers and dreamers who were behind one of the most historic endeavours of our time.
From living rooms and moonscape deserts, to Cape Canaveral, Steve captures these pioneers in frank, revealing portraits, while unravelling their very personal and divergent memories. With rare archive footage and an original score by Matt Johnson and 'The The', Moonbug, a Documentary Edge presentation directed by Nichola Bruce, is both a photographic road trip and an exploration of how photographs become a signpost for history.
