About

Patrick Parrish is excited to offer an incredible group of original photographs printed by Meisel Photochrome Corporation of Dallas circa 1970, shortly after the Apollo 11 Mission. Meisel was the official photo contractor for NASA and processed all the images from the Apollo missions. These beautiful vintage 8” x 8” chromogenic prints on Kodak paper are framed in a 13" x 13" frames and currently available at the gallery. NASA’s historic Apollo 11 Mission—crewed by astronauts Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and commander Neil Armstrong—departed earth on July 16th, 1969, and landed on the moon four days later, near the Sea of Tranquility, while 500 million people watched on television. Armstrong and Aldrin spent two and a half hours exploring the surface of the moon, collecting samples and taking photographs. The camera they used was a modified 70mm Hasselblad lunar surface camera, designed specifically for the event. During the Mission, nine magazines of 70mm film were exposed, providing panoramic views of the surface near the lunar module and allowing detailed topographic mapping of the lunar surface. Most of the photographs were taken by Armstrong, with Aldrin assisting in some cases. Title: "Aldrin driving in core tube" Original chromogenic print on "A Kodak Paper" in archival frame. Frame dimensions 13 x 13 x 1 Print dimensions 7.875 x 7.875.
