The Reva and David Logan Gallery of Documentary Photography cordially invites you to the opening reception for Apollo XI photographs by David Burnett.
Lecture by David Burnett
“As much as Apollo XI became a lodestone for human endeavors in space, the massive gathering represented the American clan: present and in the moment, there to observe the launching. These pictures leave us with a snapshot of what the country’s tempo was like at that time and how man’s quest for space could captivate, amaze, delight and cause a nation to hold its breath looking skyward.”
— David Burnett
