About the Artist
Stephen Chadwick originates from England but moved to New Zealand in 2004. The superb dark skies near Himatangi Beach, in the Manawatu, provide superb conditions for undertaking deep sky astrophotography of astronomical objects south of the celestial equator. Stephen has had images published in Astronomy Now, Sky and Telescope and the BBC's Sky at Night magazine and is the president of the Horowhenua Astronomical Society. He is the author of Imaging the Southern Sky from which many of the images on these canvas prints are taken.
