The artist

Polish-born Bartosz Wojczynski works as a computer programme designer and graphic programmer in Piekary Śląskie in southern Poland. He began to work in photography in 2011, experimenting with various techniques before beginning to focus three years later on the art of astrophotography, having acquired a high-quality Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (SCT). Attracted to technology in general, his passion fits well with astronomical photography because this type of technique requires deep knowledge of optics and digital image processing. While photographs of space are attributed to John William Draper with a daguerreotype of the Moon (1840), Bartosz Wojczynski instead constantly refers in his work to Dmitry Makolkin, considered to be one of the pioneers of high-resolution lunar imagery beginning in the 2000s.  ...

« Je prends mes photos depuis le balcon de mon appartement à Piekary Śląskie, en Pologne… Les objets du système solaire, y compris la Lune, ne sont absolument pas affectés par la pollution lumineuse en raison de la luminosité - de sorte que pour ce type d'astrophotographie, il n'est pas nécessaire de voyager ! »

BARTOSZ-WOJCYNSKI

About the artwork

To human eyes, the Moon is colourless. Using painstaking data processing, it is possible to show the differences in colouration. To produce this photograph in 2011, Bartosz Wojczynski captured 32,000 images using a telescope optimised for lunar imagery. The terrestrial atmosphere not being a stable optical medium, slight distortions appear and are then piled up and accentuated on a computer using advanced image processing algorithms. Adding special scientific filters to the process, Bartosz Wojczynski reveals slight differences in composition that correspond to various types of surfaces on the lunar surface. 91% Waning Gibbous Moon was taken from the balcony of his apartment in a densely populated urban zone in southern Poland. The Moon and planets are among the most luminous objects in the sky and can easily be photographed, even in environments that experience significant light pollution. With modern equipment available to everyone it is now possible to create images that were impossible to take twenty years ago except by professional observatories.
