Of all the sciences astronomy is the one probably most associated with the graphic image. In part this is because of the unreachable and intangible qualities of the subject being studied, which seemsto demand the creation of images as a form of understanding. Following the invention of photography, images of space proliferated and discoveries started being made almost exclusively through photography. Depictions of the universe in the arts kept up a steady dialogue with the results of astronomical research. Benson will present multiple examples of visual representations of the planets, their moons, and the larger universe beyond the solar system and work he has done converting raw image data sets from interplanetary missions into large-format photographic prints.
