Since age 10, Roger Ressmeyer has taken pictures of the sun, moon and stars. His passion for space exploration powered the creation of the world-renowned Space Places collection, photographed at observatories, space centers and solar eclipses around the globe. These images were mostly captured between 1981 and 1995 while Ressmeyer traveled on assignment for National Geographic, Time, Life, and Smithsonian.
