Today, using redshift analysis and the Hubble Ultra Deep Field telescope. We can look far back into time to see what is believed to be galaxies that existed when the Universe was just 750 million years old. These seven pieces are inspired by the vision of these young galaxies reaching across time and space to peer at the cosmic dawn.

This album is dedicated to Ray Wilson.

About Redshift

In physics, redshift happens when light or other electromagnetic radiation from an object is increased in wavelength, or shifted to the red end of the spectrum. In general, whether or not the radiation is within the visible spectrum, "redder" means an increase in wavelength – equivalent to a lower frequency and a lower photon energy, in accordance with, respectively, the wave and quantum theories of light.

About Hubble Ultra Deep Field

The Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2012, an improved version of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field image featuring additional observation time. The new data have revealed for the first time a population of distant galaxies at redshifts between 9 and 12, including the most distant object observed to date. These galaxies are shown at the top of the picture, and their locations are pinpointed in the main image. These galaxies will require confirmation using spectroscopy by the forthcoming NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope before they are considered to be fully confirmed.
