Hunter Freeman and the Astronauts

The title sounds kind of like a band name doesn’t it?  :)

I really have no idea how, but I came across a series of interesting images a long while back created by photographer Hunter Freeman.  He has a personal project where he photographs someone in a astronaut suit doing seemingly every-day things.  I seem to recall a story about him renting the suit from a friend in Hollywood, but I could be crazy, so don’t quote me on that.  However, the images are stunning, comical, sad, and really get my creative juices flowing.  Here are a few of them (linked from Wine and Bowties)

I love the feeling of solitude in the images… as well as the composition.  He uses color to evoke more of a certain mood out of the viewer, and each shot tells a story.  Outstanding images, I must say.

Have a look at the Wine and Bowties article on them, and check out Mr Freeman’s other work on his website, and blog.
