A Providence high school student has developed a stunning collection of astrophotography in his hometown during the pandemic. Griffin Haisman, a sophomore at the Wheeler School, has a passion for space and photography, allowing him to combine the two and incorporate art. Haisman’s interest in photography began in 7th grade as the pandemic hit, given him plenty of time to experiment. Equipped with his mother’s camera, he captured the Supermoon in May 2020, and his skills have improved, winning recognition from other astrophotographers worldwide. He uses special filters to overcome the city’s light pollution and stacked up to 100,000 pictures of one image, but Haisman’s hard work is worth it to capture distant celestial objects. His favorite is a nebula representing clouds of dust and gas where stars are born.
