Mae Lapres in “Fly me to the Moon” by Benjamin Kanarek for Harper’s BAZAAR China


Fly me to the Moon

In 1990, the US Space Shuttle put the Hubble in to orbit. It carried the most accurate and clearest ever telescope. Gradually it has unveiled the secrets of the Universe.

On the 20th anniversary of Hubble’s launching, Harper’s BAZAAR has invited photographer Benjamin Kanarek to lead an International team of outstanding on-camera and off-camera talent to replicate the dream-like and miraculous experience of reaching the moon and to enjoy the spectacular beauty of the boundless universe together with the anniversary of Harper’s BAZAAR China.
