Back in February (AiA Pt32) I shared with you the results of a winter solargraphy project I’d been working on. In this post I am sharing the results of the summer project.
To remind you, solargraphs are created by using a pinhole camera to capture an extreme long exposure which should track the trail of the sun over a period of a few days up to a few months. The camera is created by using a receptacle (in these cases a drinks can) with a pinhole aperture which captures a negative image on a piece of photographic paper placed inside.
The plan was to leave the cameras out from the Spring Equinox until the Autumn Equinox. Unfortunately, I had to harvest them a little earlier in September as we were hit by Storm Ali so I had to go and salvage whatever was left. Luckily, I only lost two out of the ten cameras I put out but the remainders were a little battered to say the least. I had varying degrees of success and on the whole I’m happy with the results. Even the ones that weren’t so successful give an abstract depiction of the effects of the wind, rain and sun over the summer.
