A Cluster of Stars
16 piece NFT Milky Way Collection
GENESIS DROP PART ONE
A Cluster of Stars is a small collection of 8 years photographing the Milky Way over diverse Australian landscapes. Each photograph requires precise planning to align the foreground with the distant Milky Way 26,000 light years away. This alignment occurs on select nights of the year when no moon is visible in the sky and when Earth faces the centre of our galaxy after dark. Most photographs have taken years for elements to align with good viewing conditions.
Each night you are under the stars it provides you with a surreal experience watching the night sky once your eyes adjust. Meteors light up across the sky, stars rhythmic twinkle, constellations rise and fall and you get a sense of calm looking out into its vastness. Time passes by quickly.
I present 16 minted 1/1 photographs and time-lapses showcasing the Milky Way
