Kosmos, the New York based photographer Adam Bartos's astonishing photographic survey of the Soviet space program, presents over 100 photographs, rich with the incongruities of the history, science, culture, and politics of the Space Age.
Professor Svetlana Boym's insightful introduction to the technological and cultural aspects of Soviet space exploration provides a fitting context for the photographs.
