Shane Huffman is swimming to the Moon. If ignorance of the laws of nature is the basis of superstition, there's an element of deliberate superstition in Huffman's willful revision of cosmic order. Huffman reinvests interplanetary space, drained of mystery by the imposed order of cosmological description, with something "extra and other." Using photography as an investigative process that works with three core phenomena, light, space-time and movement, he explores the individual as a participator in cosmic order rather than mere observer and parasite.
