Gorgeous Images Of Far-Away Galaxies Taken With A Film Camera

LA-based photographer Siri Kaur has been capturing images of far-away galaxies since 2007, with the help of the house-sized telescopes at the Kitt Peak National Observatory and her film camera.

Although not all of her long exposure shots turn out well, but once in a while, she gets mesmerizing photographs like the ones featured here.

By altering the color and depth of the constellation with chemicals in the dark room, she is able to produce photographs that look like the ones taken by the powerful Hubble Telescope.

According to the photographer, the project “re-engages with one of the simplest and most basic purposes of photography: to show us what would otherwise remain unseen”.
