The Lonely Astronaut: Photo Series by Karen Jerzyk
‘The Lonely Astronaut’ is an intriguing series by Boston-based photographer Karen Jerzyk, exploring contrasting feelings of wonder and isolation.
“Sparked by her purchase of an authentic vintage high-altitude space suit in 2017, Jerzyk has been traveling the world taking photos of women in the suit. Each subject is alone, placed in a deserted yet evocative environment, from an abandoned theater to an old-fashioned bedroom. In some scenes, the astronaut engages with their surroundings—reading a book or talking on the phone—where in others, the character stands apart from the world they inhabit.”
