Previously unpublished NASA space mission images will go on show to the UK public this summer. The collection of official large format NASA photographs built up by UK collector Leslie Cantwell, covers missions from Apollo 7 to Apollo 17 .
The Proud Galleries in Camden, London will exhibit the images from 21 June until 'late summer'.

Proud Camden presents an unseen collection of official NASA photographs with authentic NASA serialisation and signatures by the original astronauts themselves. Celebrating a fundamental chapter of Americana, which has almost been forgotten, Proud puts the spotlight on images that ultimately changed the world. The 1960s 1972 mark the golden years of space travel, during the first and last such voyages to the moon.
In an effort to capture the glory of these years in history, Proud unveils an unprecedented collection of large format photographs amassed personally by UK based collector, Leslie Cantwell. Cantwell has amassed what is regarded by the industries experts as the worlds largest collection of its kind and Proud Galleries will be focusing on the most critical portion of this collection: The Apollo Missions. These impressive photographs include the explorations of Buzz Aldrin, Alan Bean, Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, John Young, Michael Collins, Harrison Schmitt, Gene Cernan and of course Neil Armstrong and many more.
