Help me find a photograph from the seventies or eighties of a space-suit-clad person climbing a martian mountain.

I am trying to find a photo I saw at a Seattle art museum about two years ago. It was a large, high-quality photograph of a person climbing up a reddish mountain (in Arizona or maybe New Mexico), wearing a cumbersome space suit. I have the vague recollection that the photograph was done in the 70s or 80s by a photographer with a japanese name (I'm not sure it was japanese). It resembled this picture
by Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick, but the angle was from a higher perspective, up the mountain, and the space person was more anonymous, an almost apocalyptic figure. This has been bugging me all day. Help!
