Artsuite - Chris McCaw - Sunburned GSP #169 - In 2003, artist Chris McCaw began photographing the sun with hand made cameras and paper negatives.

In 2003, artist Chris McCaw began photographing the sun with hand made cameras and paper negatives. The resulting body of work, Sunburn, tracks the sun's movement across the sky, often rendering elegant arcs and shapes depending on the camera's location on the planet, and the time of year the photograph was taken. The "sunburned" (or solarized) negatives are the result of the intensity of the sun's light and the magnification of the camera's lens. They speak elementally about time, light and our reliance on the sun, but also speak more metaphorically about photography itself. Taking from the etymology of the word "photography", Chris McCaw has created a series of "light writings" that are as beautiful as they are awe-inspiring.
