The Lonely Astronaut Photography Karen Jerzyk

Things in life can get bad, but there's still no denying the beauty and wonder of the world, and we need to push on and keep exploring.


The Lonely Astronaut Photography Karen Jerzyk

I’m photographer Karen Jerzyk, and with my trusty time machine, I have gone exactly 1,000 years into the future to document a human astronaut’s return to Earth.

Unfortunately, I’m kidding.

The truth is, I bought an authentic vintage high-altitude space suit a few years ago and have traveled with it for thousands of miles around the world taking photos of different people in it (mostly women).

This series is a combination of my love for exploring and the anxiety I get from being around other people. I’ve felt extremely lonely the past few years, I’m constantly awkward, and I never really feel like I belong in any given situation (especially social situations).

I sometimes feel like I’m traversing this planet alone, with no one else who understands to share it with. I think at one time or another, we can all relate with The Lonely Astronaut – things in life can get bad, but there’s still no denying the beauty and wonder of the world, and we need to push on and keep exploring.
