Astronaut Charles Duke visited the moon in 1972 as part of the Apollo 16 mission. He left behind a picture of himself, with his wife and two sons. He took a picture of it before he left. The photograph remains on the moon’s surface.
Overgrowth is a new and ongoing artistic collaboration between photographer Parker Fitzgerald and floral designer Riley Messina.
Inspired by a pursuit of beauty, Riley combines classically thoughtful botanical designs with Parker’s carefully considered film images in an expression of the multifaceted relationship between humankind and nature. The two artists contrast anonymous portraiture with sweeping landscapes in an attempt to capture both the malleable and untamed aspects of the natural world.
