“This is a picture of an eclipse, which is in a certain way, a picture of the moon. Although neither the moon nor the sun are anywhere within the frame of the image. But it's a picture about looking at the moon, which has been a source of endless fascination, not only for photographers and astronomers, but also for laypeople on the street.” @themuseumofmodernart
