In June 2017, Dr. Chadha was an honorary guest at Star City during the welcoming home of the ISS Expedition 49-50 astronauts. Along with the five photographs that stay on the space station, he also donated a copy of his book, Visions of Nature, and a hard drive loaded with 500 of his images as gifts to Star City’s Yuri A. Gagarin State Scientific Research-and-Testing Cosmonaut Training Center (GCTC).
“What Dr. Chadha has accomplished is truly remarkable,” said Jerry Ibaran, a longtime Duggal associate who collaborated with the artist to produce his space-bound work on vivid, lightweight Vibrachrome ™. “It’s not every day that you get to see your work reach literally astronomical success. We support his vision and are proud to be his production partner.”
