Bigger Than Us: The Lone Cosmonaut by David Schermann

David Schermann is a conceptual photographer based in Vienna. In a recent project titled “Bigger Than Us,” Schermann brought a Russian spacesuit deep into the mountains of Vorarlberg, Austria. Digitally painted red, the sweeping mountains and valleys take on an otherworldly quality, like a deserted mirror of Earth. Both familiar and alien, the setting provides the perfect setting for the lone cosmonaut to wander and contemplate the vastness of the universe. Schermann continued exploring the space motif in his project “If You Fall Hard, I Fall Harder,” photographing the same suit filled with red roses.
