Auckland Festival of Photography is delighted to present Deep Space as part of the featured NZ exclusive exhibitions in the 'Believe' suite of works for 2024.

If seeing is believing, then NASA’s imagery from the James Webb telescope speak directly to that statement and what we feel when contemplating deep space and human’s existence in the vast expanse of the galaxies. Using infrared technology, Webb’s NIR-Cam has captured millions of images and transmitted them about 1.5 million kilometres back to Earth.

This selection of images is being presented exclusively by the Auckland Festival of Photography here down on earth, as part of the ‘Believe’ theme. Whilst the images are fully available to view online, we have chosen to reproduce them in print versions to place in an urban environment which is familiar to us, our city waterfront and give passers by an ‘other worldly’ glimpse into this mind-blowing project.

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a space telescope designed to conduct infrared astronomy. Its high-resolution and high-sensitivity instruments allow it to view objects too old, distant, or faint for the Hubble Space Telescope. - Wikipedia

“When you are trying to solve one of the biggest conundrums in cosmology, you should triple check your homework.The puzzle, called the "Hubble Tension," is that the current rate of the expansion of the universe is faster than what astronomers expect it to be, based on the universe's initial conditions and our present understanding of the universe’s evolution.” NASA.gov

All NASA images are free since US taxpayers paid NASA's missions. This excludes commercial purposes. Auckland Festival of Photography is a registered NZ charity, no CC38839.

Thanks to Eke Panuku Development for their support.
