Greetings from Mars, by Julien Mauve, France
Mauve says: ‘I have always wondered what it would be like to discover a totally different world … and to photograph it for the first time as if I was Ansel Adams. So I came up with this project, which is about space exploration and discovery. But it’s also about our behavior in front of landscapes and how we create pictures that will share our personal story with the world’
