Along with lunar soil and rock samples, arguably one of the most important legacies of the Apollo program was that of the photographs brought back by the astronauts. The imagery was instrumental in showing the US taxpayer what they were paying for, and the world what the program had achieved. Forty years on, the images have a timeless quality and stand as some of the most striking in the history of photography.
Colin Philp, a Fellow and Council Member of the British Interplanetary Society, and a freelance photographer, gives an appraisal of a range of photographs from the Apollo image archive including many rarely published.
