Apollo 11 lifts off on its historic flight to the Moon, 16 July 1969
Large-format vintage chromogenic print on resin coated Kodak paper, borderless, 35.2 x 27.5cm, \“A Kodak Paper\” watermark on verso

Perhaps Morse\’\’s greatest image for Life Magazine: \“You have to realize that the rocket had to go through the camera, in a sense. It had to go through the camera\’\’s field of view. It took me two years to get NASA to agree to let me make this shot. Now, RCA had the camera contract at Cape Canaveral at that time, and they had a steel box-with optical glass-attached to the launch platform. We negotiated a deal with them and I was able to put a Nikon, with maybe 30 or 40 feet of film, inside the box, looking out through the glass. The camera was wired into the launch countdown, and at around minus-four seconds the camera started shooting something like ten frames per second.\” Ralph Morse

Description:
Ralph Morse (American, 1917-2014) Apollo 11 lifts off on its historic flight to the Moon, July 16, 1969. Large-format vintage chromogenic print on resin-coated Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image size 14 x 10 1/2 in. (35.5 x 26.5 cm), unmatted. Condition: Minor wear at corners of sheet. N.B. 'You have to realize that the rocket had to go through the camera, in a sense. It had to go through the camera's field of view,' said Morse. 'It took me two years to get NASA to agree to let me make this shot. Now, RCA had the camera contract at Cape Canaveral at that time, and they had a steel box-with optical glass-attached to the launch platform.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Ralph Morse (American, 1917-2014) Liftoff, crescent Moon in background, Apollo 8, December 1968. NASA MSC caption on the verso. Vintage chromogenic print on fiber-based Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image size 9 1/2 x 6 5/8 in. (24.0 x 16.8 cm), unmatted. Condition: Good. N.B. Apollo 8, the first manned spacecraft to orbit the Moon, lifts off at dawn on December 21, 1968, its destination artfully placed above the firestorm in this composite photograph. In reality, however, the new Moon had already slipped below the horizon when the towering Saturn V rocket boosted Apollo 8 skyward. "That was quite a startling moment there, right at liftoff,' recalled William Anders. 'Everybody was quite startled because we had simulated the hell out of everything, aborts and everything, but nobody had ever been on a Saturn V..." (Chaikin, Voices, p. 20).
