Independent Photographer’s Gallery – Battle, East Sussex
4th July – 15th August 2009
 
Commemorating the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the lunar surface, “Man on the Moon” was not only the first exhibition photography from the Fairley Archive of Space Exploration (FASE), but also its first collaboration with leading photographer Steve Pyke MBE, and the award-winning documentary film-maker Nichola Bruce.
 
Steve Pyke’s photographic essay – “Astronauts” – captured many of man’s most celebrated pioneers in frank, revealing portraits typical of this prolific photographer’s unique style.
 
Previewing at the exhibition, filmmaker Nichola Bruce’s fascinating “MoonBug” documentary chronicled Pyke’s quest as he sets out to photograph his boyhood heroes. The film went on to win the Special Jury Prize at the Houston International Film Festival.
