KASRA KARIMI | DEEP INTO SPACE
” In this series of deep space photography (known as Astrophotography), I took all images with a telescope, camera, and sky tracker. Thanks to hours of exposure time for each photo and cutting-edge technology, I was able to photograph and portray some of the most iconic deep space targets that are hundreds, thousands, and even millions of light-years away from us. All shots were taken within the UK.”
– Kasra Karimi
