A visit to the moon

2nd semester

Summer 2016

“Moondust” is created in the photographic laboratory while experimenting with different materials like flour, water splashes and so on.

The result is a beautiful set of photographs reminding the viewer of a sandy and dusty underground, aptly named “Moondust”.

Lunar phases

The phases of the Moon are the different ways the Moon looks from Earth over about a month. As the Moon orbits around the Earth, the half of the Moon that faces the Sun will be lit up. The different shapes of the lit portion of the Moon that can be seen from Earth are known as phases of the Moon. Each phase repeats itself every 29.5 days.The same half of the Moon always faces the Earth, so the phases will always occur over the same half of the Moon's surface.
