Original NASA Photographs of the First Men on the Moon up for Auction

    Several historical images, including a moon selfie, the first photograph of Earth from space, and an astronaut who walked on the moon, made headlines and were featured on international publications’ covers. These three moments alongside many others will be up for auction at Bruun Rasmussen on the 9th of March for a combined value of DKK 1.5 million.

    Talking about the auction Lærke Bøgh, Head of Department and Specialist at Bruun Rasmussen stated: “It was truly a time of greatness, and there was a sense of incredible accomplishment because we as humans had succeeded in making it to the Moon. A belief in our own abilities and a sense of limitless potential abounded in society, and despite the crises that also existed during that time, humanity achieved some of the greatest things within space exploration – putting a human on the Moon. The spirit of the times and the world history that was written during this period shines through clearly in the photographs. Knowing that these are the original photographs taken by the astronauts during the biggest missions of their lives presents a great thrill in this digital age.”

    The full collection of photographs can be viewed at Bruun Rasmussen’s preview from the 24th until the 28th of February. The opening presentation of the preview includes a talk about the NASA photographs by specialist Lærke Bøgh on 24 February at 4 pm.
