David Schermann unveils a series that is both poetic and intriguing, telling the story of an astronaut not like the others. As the astronaut Mark Watney, abandoned on Mars in the film The Martian, this space traveler is alone in the middle of a deserted red landscape, as if he had failed in an unknown land. At times he seems to indulge in melancholy, lying among the tall red grass before regaining hope, watching the horizon with resolution, posted on the reliefs that surround him.
