Inspired by the end of NASA’s space shuttle program, photographer Neil DaCosta and art director Sara Phillips created a photo series entitled “Astronaut Suicides,” depicting symbolic astronauts killing themselves in various ways.

“We wanted to acknowledge the end of an era in a visual way that would bring the conversation to the creative community,” says Phillips. “The incongruity of the astronaut in these situations is, we hope, compelling and humorous, and we hope that we’re encouraging a younger audience to pay attention to what’s going on.”
