The month-long exhibition, entitled “Space—Time—Continuum” is curated by one of America’s most private collectors, Rudolf Budja. It will show a hand-picked selection of 40 of NASA’s never-before-seen prints developed from its most famous and historic missions between 1955 and 1994. These include original images from the 1969 Apollo 11 mission that celebrates its 50-Year Anniversary this year. The 40 photographs have been selected from the complete NASA photo collection of 8,000 pictures acquired by Budja himself, which is now part of his personal archive at Rudolf Budja Gallery in Miami Beach. With a total value estimated to be in the eight-figure range, comparable photos have been known to sell between $1000 and $30,000 each. The complete collection obtained by Budja remains under copyright by NASA.

The “Space—Time—Continuum” exhibition will be shown from October 24th to November 24th at the Continuum, located at 50 South Pointe Drive in Miami Beach, Florida. Viewing appointments may be made through Rudolf Budja Gallery by calling 786.556.6685 or by emailing budja@me.com.
