David Burnett : Our Moon

Lens Showcase : Our moon Lens has posted a very interesting set of photographs taken by David Burnett during the launch of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. According to the piece, Burnett was working for Time and

knew he had little chance to jump ahead of more experienced photographers and be assigned to shoot the lift-off. “There’s going to be a million people photographing the rocket,” he said. “Who’s going to shoot the people watching?” So he persuaded his editors to send him to photograph the onlookers.
