About the work: Psyche is the Greek goddess of the soul. Her namesake, the Psyche asteroid, is of course the soul of the mission. However, spirit alone is not enough to achieve our lofty goals. As humans, we have used our intellect to forge a path of innovation. I wanted to create an image that captured the marriage of soul and mind, represented by the goddess Psyche and the Psyche spacecraft respectively.

About the work: Soul is a companion piece to my first project: Innovation. While Innovation celebrates the technological advancements of the Psyche mission, Soul takes us back to the heart of the mission: the asteroid itself. Therefore, I wanted to create a more mellow and introspective piece to counter the vivacity and determination of Innovation. Together, all aspects of Psyche work in harmony.

About the work: Windows to the Soul is a photographic love letter to the unexplored metal world that is Psyche. With this collection, my goal was to immerse the viewer in a land of rich rocky and metal textures. There is also a theme of “looking closer,” as I took many of the images in pairs—one with my normal lens and another at macro distance. I wanted to invoke a sense of wonder, curiosity, and slight disorientation—feelings one might get while exploring Psyche for the first time.
