Large photograph of the NASA's Apollo 11 Mission showing the astronaut Buzz Aldrin walking down the lunar module "Eagle" the 20th July 1969. Large vintage chromogenic print on matt "A Kodak Paper" mounted tightly on cardboard.

First man to walk on the Moon, Neil Armstrong can immortalize the spectacle of the arrival of the Man on it by photographing Buzz Aldrin descending the scale of the lunar module «Eagle». In the background, clearly appears the lunar horizon and its «magnificent desolation» as evoked by Buzz Aldrin by posing his foot on the Moon.

NASA’s Apollo 11 mission’s large format photographs are rare. They have been produced in order to be exposed or to be given to important personalities, particularly to the leaders of NASA’s "contractors" (companies under contract with NASA who were responsible for developing particular aspects of the American space program).

These large-format photographs were thus often presented in the premises of directorates or personalities. Their iconic status made them true trophies of war: the brilliant success of the American space conquest is inscribed in the marble of the History of Humanity.

From the mid-1970s, these photographs were naturally set aside and forgotten. Very few have been preserved until now. They subsequently became one of the most significant testimonies of the most important moment in the History of the human space conquest: Man’s first step on the Moon.
