NASA gave Dan Winters premiere access to its space program because he has photography down to a science.

Winters meticulously set up his cameras within 700 feet of the final launches of space shuttles Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour, which is no small feat given the massive vibrations caused by the spaceward bound blasts. He also got access to iconic space memorabilia such as Neil Armstrong’s lunar suit, pictured above.

See more images from his series “Last Launch” on KPCC’s AudioVision, and, if you’re in L.A., you can see his exhibit at the Fahey/Klein Gallery from July 11th - August 31st.

It’s possible he wasn’t the only person creating such books but his was the only one to survive, we simply don’t know,” says Tiramani. “But whatever his reason it’s not something you’d expect an accountant to do - then or now.”

Never know what accountants are hiding up their fancy sleeves.
