Description:

Unidentified Photographer
The Saturn V rocket and the American flag, Apollo 11, July 16, 1969. Vintage chromogenic print on fiber-based GAF paper, image size 9 5/8 x 7 5/8 in. (24.3 x 19.2 cm), unmatted.
Condition: Color shifting and yellowing to sheet, adhesive residue right edge and l.r. corner, handling crimp l.l.

N.B. The American flag heralds the flight of Apollo 11, man's first lunar landing mission. This double exposure was made with a 1000mm lens when the rocket was at an altitude of about 5,000 feet. A band of super cold propellants seems to circle the rocket near its center. The image was superimposed upon the image of the flag, captured one day earlier.
Estimate $400-600
