Astronaut Piers Sellars

Recently, I had the privilege to photograph Astronaut Piers Sellars, who now has stage four cancer. "I have very few days left in the world "“ and I know how I want to use them." He said.  
"From this God's-eye-view, I saw how fragile and infinitely precious the Earth is." 

He's decided to spend his final days continuing his work on the issue of Climate Change which he believes that the science proving it and dangers it presents to mankind has been blurred by politics. 

When I photographed him, he made it clear, he didn't want me to make any sad photographs about him dying. He wanted to focus on the last big task ahead of him:
