Photographs of Roland Miller
“Abandoned In Place” is
a photographic exploration of the American
launch and research facilities that
played a crucial role in the early
era of space exploration. This project
serves not only as a documentary, but
also as an artistic interpretation
of these historic events.
A unique combination of historic,
abstract and hybrid images allows AIP
to be viewed from many perspectives.
The exhibition documents a vanishing
era in both the Space Race and Cold
War. The temporal nature of life is
evident in the photographs of decaying
sites that once captured the attention
of the entire world.
facilities photographed in AIP portray
one of the most historic and technical
adventures of the last century – from
our first unmanned space flights to
our first steps on the Moon. The fast-paced
nature of the Space Race is evident
in many of the photographs, and the
signs and labels in the images reflect
the technology of the era.
The Kansas Cosmosphere, in association
with Roland Miller, is touring AIP.
Bookings are for a twelve week period
at $4,500 (plus shipping). AIP contains
43 color photographs framed and matted.
The exhibit also includes text that
details each photograph.
