astronaut cadet orbyThe former commander of the International Space Station, Colonel Chris Hadfield, who became an international sensation after his rendition of David Bowie’s Space Oddity went viral, announced a partnership today with Great BIG Canvas of CafePress Inc. to make his photographs from space available for sale to the public. For the first time, Colonel Hadfield’s photographs will be available for purchase as gallery wrap canvases, framed prints, or wall peels by going to his official web site or directly to his photographic collection on Great BIG Canvas.

“It is a truly humbling experience to be able to share the beauty of our world,” says Colonel Hadfield. “The view from station allows for us to see ourselves as we truly are: a single planet, shared by all.”hadfield-wall-photo

The Hadfield collection includes over 550 curated photographs, including some of his most popular images shared via social media while Hadfield was in orbit.

“We’ve never seen a collection of images quite as fascinating as those that Colonel Hadfield took from Earth’s orbit,” says Gavin Jocius, General Manager of Great BIG Canvas. “Hadfield’s landscapes are emotionally compelling in that they capture our planet’s complexity in ways that make them appear, at first glance, to be abstract expressionist paintings.”

Images are printed at facilities located in Toronto or Raleigh, NC for shipment directly to the consumer, with prices ranging from $39.99 USD for wall peels to $350 USD for large canvas wraps.

“These are very unique photographs,” adds Jocius, “that make excellent centerpieces for home and office décor because they are breathtakingly beautiful, part of history and the embodiment of the inquisitive human spirit.”
