Lucas Missoni: Moon Atlas

Lucas Missoni: Moon Atlas

  • Luca Missoni is an Italian photographer passionate about astronomy. The moon has always been at the centre of his artistic research. For more than twenty years he has been realising a photographic project which explores the moon, focusing on the tension between reality and imagination.

    In his childhood he started to observe the moon with a telescope, collecting maps and books. With the myth of the moon increasing its charm since the Sixties, with its explorations, Missoni has been more and more inspired to pursue a project for a personal Atlas of the heavenly body. The book is structured in two main sections: the first part with an obsessive and rigorous representation of the moon in all its phases; the second part with its interpretation in a continuous testing of colours and composition of different phases.

    The result is a personal trip around the moon with a representation of the visible side of our satellite, in a continuous tension towards the shadowed and hidden part.
