Chris McCaw. Sunburned GSP #389 (Puget Sound, WA/Full day), 2009.
Unique gelatin silver paper negative.
this process the sun burns its path onto the light sensitive negative.
After hours of exposure, the sky, as a result of the extremely intense
light exposure, reacts in an effect called solarization- a natural
reversal of tonality through over exposure. The resulting negative
literally has a burnt hole in it with the landscape in complete
reversal. The subject of the photograph (the sun) has transcended the
idea that a photograph is simple a representation of reality, and has
physically come through the lens and put it’s hand onto the final piece.
This is a process of creation and destruction, all happening within
the the camera. ..." CM.
