Historic moment

This is a historic moment for space exploration, says Montreal studio creative director, Felix Lagounis. Photographs of astronaut Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon in 1969 made history. Through his project, Felix & Paul Studios will be able to document the history of space with techniques far more advanced than those that produced the famous black and white photographs of 1969, assures Mr. Lajeunesse in an interview.
