The original NASA photographic film from the Apollo missions is some of the most important and valuable film in existence. It is securely stored in a frozen vault at Johnson Space Center, Houston. It never leaves the building – in fact, the film rarely leaves the freezer. The images it contains include the most significant moments in our history, as humankind left the confines of our home planet for the first time and set foot on another world.

For half a century, almost every image of the Moon landings publicly available was produced from a lower-quality copy of these originals. Until now…

Apollo Remastered will land at Williamson Art Gallery & Museum on April 29th 2023, showcasing images from Andy Saunders’ extraordinary book of the same name. Saunders invites readers to explore the Moon landings in spectacular high definition for the very first time. By applying pain-staking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques, he has created the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced.

Never-before-seen spacewalks across desolate lunar landscapes, other-worldly portraits of astronauts in their spacecraft, and awe-inspiring visions of Earth above the lunar horizon; each image in this ground-breaking new book offers new insight into one of our greatest endeavours.
