I thought astronauts couldn't wait to leave Earth and go into space, but the ones featured in this Nacho Alegre photography series defy that notion. This series focuses heavily on grounded astronauts who are exploring the sights of city life.

Maybe space isn't as cool as everyone thinks it is; after all, these astronauts sure so seem to be enjoying their time on Earth -- in their space suits, that is. Beyond the use of astronauts as muses, this Nacho Alegre photography also incorporates other Earthlings.

The Spanish photographer shows no boundaries, capturing a variety of scenes and muses. Some of Alegre's work has even been featured in acclaimed fashion magazines such as Vogue Russia, Vanity Fair and GQ Germany. The photo set is the perfect combination of out-of-this-world scenery and familiar Earthling fixtures.
