Caption: Earthrise photograph. Artwork based on the famous Earthrise photographs taken by the Apollo 8 astronauts Frank Borman and William Anders. The photographs were taken as Apollo 8 orbited the Moon on 24 December 1968. This artwork is based on the black-and-white photograph taken by Borman. A few minutes later, Anders took a colour photograph. The Earthrise photographs are considered to be among the most influential ever taken, inspiring greater understanding of the Earth's environment, set here against the blackness of space, and the barren surface of the Moon.
