First Selfies on Mars


Greetings From Mars is a quiet yet impactful series by Julien Mauve. In his photoshoot, he has some great “Martian” landscapes, complete with explorers holding selfie sticks and capturing their first impressions. And while we’re not there yet, NASA and SpaceX both have goals set to land a human on Mars in the 2030s, so photos like these may be a great foreshadowing of what’s to come.

From the artist:

I have always wondered what it would be like to discover a totally different world, lifeless, full of wild landscapes and to photograph it for the first time as if I was Ansel Adams. So I came up with this project, which is about space exploration and discovery. But it’s also about our behavior in front of landscapes and how we create pictures that will share our personal story with the world.
