Michael Soluri Explores Pluto Through Pictures

Moab Master, Michael Soluri, is thrilled that his photograph of the New Horizons probe (back in 2005 before launch) was chosen for Kenneth Chang’s front page story in Sunday’s (July 19) print edition of the New York Times, along with the WIRED and Smithsonian Magazine

9-1/2 years and 3 billions miles later, the New Horizons spacecraft sent back close up images of Pluto. Michael Soluri has been documenting the mission since 2005 photographing the scientists, flight controllers and engineers to learn about the people involved in the process of discovering our solar system. 

"I have always been struggling to find the humanity in space exploration, on Earth and above," says Soluri. "I brought my sons down to the Air and Space Museum in 1984 or 1985. I took them in, and there was an exact replica of the Viking lander [sent to Mars in 1975]. So we're looking at it, and there's this big robot and I'm seeing all this text, and something's puzzling me: I didn't see the picture of the person who made it possible. And I held on to that for like 20 years."

Michael Soluri and the team at Moab is looking forward to seeing these photographs in PRINT

Epson Victorian Professional Photographer of the Year 2015

The 2015 Epson Victorian Professional Photographer of the Year competition has been running in Melbourne at 1140 studios. Moab Master, Joshua Holko, won multiple categories, the highest scoring print and the overall title of 2014 Epson Victorian Professional Photographer of the Year last year. It is a competition Joshua thoroughly enjoys from the capture to print. 

Congratulations to Joshua Holko for scoring Silver in four landscape photographs and three of his Science, Wildlife and Wild Places photographs in the 2015 AIPP Awards.

All of the prints were printed on Holko's all-time favorite stock for fine art photography prints, Moab Somerset Museum Rag

Arctic Fox Snow Storm – 89 Silver with Distinction Award Science, Wildlife and Wild Places Category

Dune on Fire – 86 Silver with Distinction Award Landscape Category

The AIPP National and State awards are two of the few remaining competitions to actually judge the finished print and they do so using a panel of judges all deemed experts in their respective genres and accredited as Masters of Photography through their years of success in this arena. 

Joshua Holko will now be headed to the South Island of New Zealand for his 2015 Masterclass Workshop.
