My background as a 3D technical director and my love for image processing come to great use in the processing of space images. I have always been fascinated by space exploration. It is almost the only chance to explore and see something truly new. More than once I have startled myself when realizing that I was the first person ever to see the vista that I just assembled on my screen. A world never before witnessed reaching out trough time and space and LCD glass. I hope that sharing my images can recapture a little of that feeling.
