Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.

Laurent Lavader is a French astrophotographer. His new collection, Jeux Lunaires (Moon Games) features whimsical and beautiful photos of the moon (NPR Gallery, Flickr). Many of the photos have been coupled with a poem and collected in a book which you can preview online.

Lavader is one of the organizers of The World At Night (TWAN), which aims to "produce and present a collection of stunning photographs and time-lapse videos of the world's most beautiful and historic sites against the nighttime backdrop of stars, planets and celestial events."

A large collection of his work can be found on his gallery website.

I hope they make an english translation; Hell, I'm tempted to buy the French edition anyway and use what little High School French I have left to translate the poems.
