APOLLO REMEMBERED at Good Children Gallery, Opening April 13, 2013 6pm
MOONBUG - documentary film Screening as part of Film-O-Rama, Prytania Theater, April 11, 7:30 pm
The New Orleans Photo Alliance is proud to be partnering with Good Children Gallery and The New Orleans Film Society to bring acclaimed Photographer Steve Pyke for two events in April: Apollo Remembered (Pyke’s work about the men that walked on the moon) and Moonbug, a documentary film directed by Nichola Bruce. Moonbug documents Pyke’s travels in search for the trailblazers of one of mankind’s greatest achievements of the 20th century.
Bitten by the ‘Moonbug’, photographer Steve Pyke set out on a journey across America to meet and photograph the Apollo space pioneers. A journey in which he was to meet the adventurers, risk takers and dreamers who were behind one of the most historic endeavors of our time.
From living rooms, and moonscape deserts, to Cape Canaveral, Steve captures these men in frank, revealing portraits, while unravelling their very personal and divergent memories. Apollo Remembered will be opening Saurday, April 13th at 6pm, Good Children Gallery, 4037 St. Claude Ave., New Orleans, LA 70117.
Documented by filmmaker Nichola Bruce with rare archive footage and an original score by Matt Johnson (The The), Moonbug is both a photographic road trip and an exploration of how photographs become signposts for history. Moonbug will screen as part of Film-O-Rama, Thursday April 11th, 7:30 pm at the Prytania Theater. There will be a Q&A with Steve Pyke after screening.
