In my art, I often reach for pure escapism by portraying imaginary worlds in the spirit of classic science fiction. I find it liberating to let the mind roam free and envisage humanity reaching for the stars.
This image depicts an escape shuttle used by the early settlers from Planet Emang’s Settlement 3. It was one of the starships launching after a sudden volcanic eruption nearby. The liftoff has been photographed from Settlement 4, itself temporarily safe from seismic activity.
