Chris McCaw, Sunburned GSP#325, 2009

McCaw began in the darkroom at age 13 and stuck with this (now) old technology. Since discovering the beauty of large format photography, Chris has since explored the medium in an entirely new way. This silver gelatin paper negative image was created by leaving the shutter of a film camera open while the sun made its way through the sky. As a result, being that the lens of the camera focuses all the energy of the sun into a small point, the image itself is burned into the paper. Although the treeline is crisp, where the sun passed by the exposure was partially solarized. See more at
