New book project by Roland Miller, creator of "Abandon in Place: Preserving America's Space History" and "Interior Space: A Visual Exploration of the International Space Station," now on Kickstarter.
"Orbital Planes: A Personal Vision of the Space Shuttle" is a visual presentation of my journey documenting and interpreting the Space Shuttle, including the orbiters, rockets, and manufacturing, testing, and launch facilities located around the United States. Along with the images in the book are my accounts of interactions with the Space Shuttle program and its personnel. I approached this subject in the a hybrid style of documentary and abstract imagery to tell a more complete story. The book is being published by Damiani Editore in Bologna, Italy, in 2022.

I started documenting the Space Shuttle program when I was teaching photography at a college near the Kennedy Space Center. In 2008, I began a concentrated effort to document the final years of the program. "Orbital Planes" is the result of that photography work. My hope is that "Orbital Planes" will give the reader their own personal view of the Space Shuttle and the technology and facilities that helped it fly.

Miller addresses shipping in the campaign's FAQ:
since the COVID 19 pandemic began, international shipping and mail rates have skyrocketed. In fact I've had inquires from people interested in backing the campaign who live outside the United States...

It doesn't seem reasonable to expect backers to pay more for shipping than the reward. If you are interested in getting a signed book shipped internationally, message me through Kickstarter, and I will determine the shipping costs and we can go from there.

All times are CT (US)
