This darkly absurd photo series stars a spacesuit-clad astronaut dramatically attempting to kill himself after reading about the end and last hurrah of NASA’s shuttle program in the newspaper. Portland, Oregon-based Neil Dacosta’s Astronaut Suicides features wrist slashing, car gassing, pill chugging… You know, the classics.
Oh woe. The sterile interiors give this an extra chill.
Is this morbid Harold-type extravaganza insensitive, is it poignant critique or is it… sick ‘n’ silly?
