This celebrated picture has also been described as the first self-portrait on the Moon.
Pete Conrad took this gorgeous photograph of Alan Bean near Sharp Crater. Bean holds a container of lunar soil in his right hand. His Hasselblad camera is mounted on the control unit on his chest. Conrad is fully reflected in sharp detail in Alan Bean’s visor.
“I’ve always thought those pictures... we took of each other on the Moon were all we were going to have left after it was over to remember what we did.”
—Pete Conrad (Schick and Van Haaften, pg. 40)
