"In the late 90's, Voyager 1 photographed Jupiter and its four planet-size moons, called the Galilean satellites," the artist writes. "The image that NASA presented had a structure that reminds me of the composition of this photo. There are three persons in the photo; we only see their backs. But if you look closer, there is something like a face and an eye above in the mid-top left. The resemblance to NASA's image is clear to me. I wanted somehow to shoot a tribute-photo for that image that was stuck in my mind for almost two decades."
